Judge’s gay marriage ruling reinforces Ohio lawmaker’s call for impeachment

On Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Timothy-BlackFederal judge Timothy Black did not make a friend in Republican Rep. John Becker after Black announced his plans to issue a ruling on April 14 forcing the state of Ohio to recognize the marriages of gay couples who wed out of state. According to WLWT.com on April 7, the ruling has lead to another call for impeachment by Becker.

The ruling will be the second time Black has ruled in favor or same-sex marriage in the state and the second time he has infuriated the Clermont County lawmaker who first called for the judge’s impeachment back in September after Black made his first ruling in favor of gay marriage in a separate lawsuit.

Becker’s reasoning for calling for the impeachment is that he believes Black has allowed “personal political bias to supersede jurisprudence.”

As gay marriage cases have resulted in favorable rulings throughout the country, gaining momentum from the historic Supreme Court ruling back in June 2013, states with bans on gay marriage have had those bans struck down when challenged in court.

Therefore, the call to impeach Black because of his ruling will probably be a long shot, but Becker’s effort has began as he has filed House Concurrent Resolution 37 for Congress to remove Black.

If he is impeached, he will only be the ninth federal judged removed by Congress.

About - Tarringo T. Vaughan always believed he had a love affair with literature. One of the first pictures he saw of himself was of him at maybe the age of three or four year’s old sitting with a book in his hand. But for Tarringo, growing up in the depths of the inner city both in Boston, MA and Springfield, MA made him believe that expression through the literary voice was un-cool and unattainable. As a very quiet and shy child he learned it became very valuable in his self expression. Born in 1976, Tarringo was the first child, grandchild and nephew in a family that had grown accustomed to struggle. His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
