Judge rules for dying Ohio man's same-sex marriage

Jim Obergefell, right, and John Arthur return from their wedding flight at Landmark Aviation at Cincinnati's Lunken Airport. The couple were married during a short ceremony on the plane, on the tarmac, at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, after flying in from Cincinnati. Arthur suffers from ALS, is bedridden and is in hospice care. A federal judge has ruled in favor of the two Ohio men who want their out-of-state marriage recognized as John nears death.
