Pennsylvania court to hear gay marriage arguments on Sept. 4
Montgomery County violating state's marriage law, governor says
A Pennsylvania court will hear arguments next month on the governor's attempt to stop a county official from issuing same-sex marriage licenses.
Republican Gov. Tom Corbett's administration said Montgomery County officials are violating the state's one-man, one-woman marriage law.
Democratic officials, however, said they believe the state marriage law is unconstitutional.
Commonwealth Court will hear arguments on Sept. 4 in Harrisburg.
Meanwhile, a few mayors around the state are stepping into the fray.
In western Pennsylvania, Braddock Mayor John Fetterman said he has performed several same-sex marriages at his home.
And State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham has hosted a same-sex wedding, but she said she had a minister perform the ceremony so she would not violate her oath of office.
