Ohio Lawmaker Renews Call For Judge’s Impeachment
A state lawmaker has reiterated his call for the impeachment of a federal judge who plans to order Ohio to recognize out-of-state gay marriages.
Republican Rep. John Becker of Union Township first called for Cincinnati-based Judge Timothy Black’s removal in September, after Black issued an order in a separate lawsuit involving gay marriage.
On Friday, Black said he plans to issue a ruling April 14 forcing the state to recognize the marriages of gay Ohio couples who have wed in states that allow same-sex marriage.
Becker said in a news release Monday that Black has allowed “personal political bias to supersede jurisprudence.”
Becker has filed a resolution for Congress to impeach Black.
Black has declined to comment on Becker’s efforts.
