UPDATE: Ohio Gay Marriage Ban Is Rejected In Narrow Ruling

CINCINNATI (AP) - Ohio's attorney general says the state will appeal a federal judge's ruling ordering recognition of gay marriages on death certificates.
    
While U.S. District Judge Timothy Black's ruling Monday applies only to the death certificate issue, his opinion sweepingly challenge Ohio's ban on gay marriage as unconstitutional.
    
Attorney General Mike DeWine says Black's decision wasn't a surprise, given the Cincinnati-based judge's earlier rulings in the case. DeWine says the state will ask the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn it.
