No Trial Date Yet for Pennsylvania's Gay Marriage Ban
A federal judge is holding off on setting a trial date for a lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania's ban on same-sex marriage.
U.S. District Judge John Jones III on Wednesday told lawyers in the case that, before it goes any further, he wants to consider and rule on pre-trial motions, particularly one that claims the federal courts lack jurisdiction over state marriage laws.
William Lamb, a former state Supreme Court justice who's representing Governor Corbett and state Health Secretary Michael Wolf, says the case will be over if Jones agrees with that argument based on a four-decade-old U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
Attorneys for the plaintiffs say they don't expect the motion to be granted. If it is, they say they'll appeal to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.
