Recognition Of Same Sex Marriages On Hold Pending Appeal; Portman Weighs In

After reviewing arguments from both sides of the issue, federal court Judge Timothy Black stayed the portion of his decision that has statewide effects while allowing the four same-sex couples who filed the case to have their names listed on their children's birth certificates.
