Gay Marriage Death Certificate Case Back In Court
A fight over whether gay marriages should be recognized on Ohio death certificates returns to the courtroom Wednesday.
The dispute began when two gay men successfully argued in federal court that their recently deceased souses to be listed as married on their death certificates. Both couples were legally married in other states.

A judge is expected to release a ruling in the case by the end of the year.
