    Judge: June trial for Pennsylvania gay marriage lawsuit

    Judge: June trial for Pennsylvania gay marriage lawsuit
    Judge: June trial for Pennsylvania gay marriage lawsuit

    HARRISBURG (AP) — A federal judge in Harrisburg says he’ll schedule a June trial for a lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania’s gay-marriage ban.
    U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III told lawyers in the case Friday he would set a trial date and a timetable for pre-trial discovery and depositions soon.
    Lawyers for the state sought an August trial, but Jones said the delay was unnecessary.
    Pennsylvania is the only northeastern state that bars same-sex marriage. Nationally, Illinois this week joined 15 other states and the District of Columbia in allowing it.
    The federal lawsuit was the first of at least six state and federal lawsuits that challenge aspects of the 17-year-old Pennsylvania law. Civil rights lawyers filed it on behalf of plaintiffs who include a widow, 11 couples and one couple’s two teenage daughters.

    NICE!!!!!!
    still a while off but looks like PA is going to be one of the next with and protecting equal rights for gays! I hope so, it'll make me proud to live in a state that supports equal rights.

    Living in this time of change is so exciting, watching the fight for equal rights and seeing it win is something almost indescribable. A mixture of awe, relief, being proud, excited and thankful.

    16 states and DC have equal rights:

    California - June 28, 2013
    Connecticut - November 12, 2008
    Delaware - July 1, 2013
    Hawaii - December 2, 2013 effective
    Illinois - June 1, 2014 effective
    Iowa - April 27, 2009
    Maine - December 29, 2012
    Maryland - January 1, 2013
    Massachusetts - May 17, 2004
    Minnesota - August 1, 2013
    New Hampshire - January 1, 2010
    New Jersey - October 21, 2013
    New York - July 24, 2011
    Rhode Island - August 1, 2013
    Vermont - September 1, 2009
    Washington - December 6, 2012

    16 more are in various stages of fighting or establishing a fight for equal rights

    New Mexico – is granting equal rights for now and the SSC is going to decided on this soon

    Court Case(s) in the works to establish equal rights:
    Arkansas
    Kentucky
    Michigan (Feb Trial)
    North Carolina
    Oklahoma
    Pennsylvania (June Trial)
    South Carolina
    Utah


    Court Case(s) and Legislation in the works, which ever wins first:
    Arizona
    Nevada
    Ohio (December 2013 trial)


    Legislation in the works:
    Colorado
    Florida
    Oregon

    thats 32 states that could have equal rights by 2015 and some much sooner!

    Massachusetts was in favor of equality before it went mainstream. :hipster:

    This is not about equal rights but about ludicrously violating definitive propriety in the name of political vote pandering, nothing more, making everyone exposed to it all dumber.

    Also, whatever changes are erroneously made in state laws, their effect will be of a temporary contemporary nature, I assure you, likely meaningless 100 years from now.

    Oh hey he's spouting his favorite meaningless term again.

    Usage of words changes. Even "gay" and "faggot" are used differently today than a half century ago.

    I'm not sure why you think this violates some universal principle. Language changes, man. Instead of getting hung up on semantics, maybe you should try seeing the people behind the issue.

    Violating definitive propriety. (a term and concept you invented) I'm sure everybody is really, really concerned.

    Are you really so desperate in your hate that you just can't resist pissing on progress by saying that 100 years from now...when of course, none of us will be around to tell you how wrong you were.

    100 years from now there will be videos of gay weddings that will be available at click of a button, just like they are today. The proof that same sex couples *marry* and will continue to marry isn't going anywhere, no matter how much you whine about it.

    We'll include you into the group that fought against interracial marriage as well. Hopefully you and your ilk will either change with the times or die out and make the world a better place.

    I will say that I know little about the Massachusetts state Constitution, however I will say I know a lot about the United States constitution and nowhere does our constitution even recognize marriage...

    Once again gays/gay "rights" advocates have absolutely ZERO understanding of law, the premise of law or the constitution in general. That's why progressives need community organizers and judicial activists on the bench to see it their way from a political perspective and not a legal perspective.

    If it matters I think it's fantastic that more states are embracing the Tenth Amendment but it's also a farce that every time the people speak and vote down gay marriage progressives go running to their progressiveness appointed judges screaming
    "no fair" despite the fact the people of said state have spoken - but that is EXACTLY what Obama and his **** minions want.... Every opportunity to challenge democracy and have democracy be put in the hands of a Judge....

    An informed 12-year-old can see the game the progressives are playing here, well considering they're on the same mental level as a 12-year-olds...

    Everyone in PA (taxpayers) should be pissed. What a waste of $$$....they know how it's going to end up. There are no longer any grounds to fight it on.

    I dont want to hear about PA conservatives whining about welfare next yr....they wasted all the money fighting a battle in a war that's already been won.
