Pennsylvania's AG Might Not Even Defend Their Gay Marriage Ban in Court
Facing a lawsuit from the ACLU, it looks like Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is going to refuse to defend the state government's ban on gay marriage. Pennsylvania, the only state in the northeast without provisions for same-sex civil unions or marriages, was one of the first states with gay marriage bans targeted by a suit in the wake of the Supreme Court's partial striking of the Defense of Marriage Act.
Sounds like the Keystone state needs a new AG, quickly!
This is spelled out quite plainly in the Nebr. Constitution--
"Only marriage between a man and a woman shall be valid or recognized in Nebraska. The uniting of two persons of the same sex in a civil union, domestic partnership or other similar same-sex relationship shall not be valid or recognized in Nebraska."
I wonder if Penn., has as good of legal statement on the subject.
