Showdown in Commonwealth Court On Same Sex Marriage

A Commonwealth Court Judge will take up a dispute today between the state health department and Montgomery County on the issuance of same sex marriage licenses by Montgomery County Register of Wills Bruce Hanes. The state is asking the court to order Hanes to stop issuing the licenses based on a 1996 state statute that defines marriage as that between a man and woman. Hanes cited a part of the state constitution that prohibits discrimination on any person. Since July, Hanes has issued more than 160 same sex marriage licenses.
