USA, Ohio: Another Marriage Equality Lawsuit

Written by scott on February 20th, 2014

OhioA gay couple in Ohio is suing to have the state’s marriage equality ban overturned because it’s blocking their attempts to add their family to a health plan.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

Cowger and Wesley, who’ve been together for 28 years and live in Gates Mills in suburban Cleveland, married in upstate New York in June 2012 and have a 7-year-old adopted daughter. “This is the last straw,” said Cowger, who also is an attorney and will be arguing the lawsuit before federal Judge Christopher Boyko. “After 28 years, we’re just so sick of having to jump through hoops and get around all these restrictions, all the stuff that comes with these prohibitions, to be treated like a family. We’re just tired of being given not even a second-class status – a no-class status.”

Amen, sister friend.
