Sodomy in history, March 13th


1944 — An Ohio appellate court rules that cunnilingus does not violate the state’s unusually worded sodomy law. This ruling also apparently affects Iowa, Nebraska and Texas, since they copied Ohio’s law.
1954 — Kentucky enacts a Uniform Code of Military Justice, and it copies the federal code’s sodomy provision, the first in the nation to include a sodomy law.
1975 — The U.S. District Court in Pennsylvania halts surveillance of public restrooms from overhead holes without a warrant.
