Attorneys for plaintiffs in the federal case that toppled gay marriage bans nationwide filed paperwork on Friday seeking more than $1.1 million from the state of Ohio to pay for legal fees stemming from the case.

Attorneys in the Obergefell v. Hodges case asked U.S. District Court Timothy S. Black to order the state to reimburse them $1,096,142.50 in attorney's fees and $51,360.12 in expenses. The legal team is seeking an additional 50 percent beyond their fees and expenses, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.

The lawyers argue that the additional costs are warranted because the case “resulted in a landmark Supreme Court decision.”

Obergefell changed the lives of thousands of parents and their children throughout Ohio and the entire country,” the brief states. “These extraordinary results were achieved through the superior work” of the attorneys who worked on the case.

The decision, handed down in June, said that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry.

Earlier this year, Indiana announced that it paid more than $1.4 million in fees fighting five federal court cases that challenged the state's restrictive marriage ban.
