Same-Sex Marriage Ban Challenge

Both sides in the challenge to Pennsylvania's gay marriage law would prefer that the judge, not a trial, determine the outcome. The plaintiffs challenging the same-sex marriage ban are asking a federal judge to make an immediate decision in their case. A spokesman for Gov. Tom Corbett's office, which is defending the constitutionality of the law, says they'll also request a summary judgment instead of a trial. John Stapleton, an attorney for the plaintiffs, says the state hasn't refuted their facts presented in the case and only one question remains.
