In re application for correction of birth record of Hailey E. Adelaide, Case No. 2022-0934
Second District Court of Appeals (Clark County)

- Does R.C. 3705.15 preclude probate courts from hearing a transgender person's application to correct the sex listed on the person's birth certificate?
- Should the statute be interpreted to avoid the constitutional violations found in a 2020 federal court decision on corrections to sex markers?
- Should state courts give persuasive weight to the federal court's conclusion in that case?
