A gay rights group wants to intervene in a court case that's being appealed, hoping to persuade a federal court to overturn Ohio's gay marriage ban and allow same-sex couples to wed in the state.
Airbnb urged a New York judge Tuesday to reject a subpoena for information about those using the global website to offer apartment rentals in New York City, its attorney calling that "a fishing expedition."
Kaplan acknowledged that intervention in a case at this stage is relatively rare but appropriate given a spate of recent pro-marriage rulings across the country.
"The Ohio Constitution impermissibly discriminates against gay and lesbian couples not only by denying their right to marry, but - even more outrageously - by denying them legal recognition in any form whatsoever, thus going far beyond simply prohibiting marriages between gay people," Kaplan wrote.
