PA: Lehigh County same-sex benefits in limbo

    The Morning Call: An amendment eliminating benefits for same-sex couples is the first to roll out in response to a Lehigh County budget with a $10 million deficit. Commissioner Tom Creighton is sponsoring the only amendment to the 2014 budget so far, pushing back against County Executive Matt Croslis’ expansion of benefits to same-sex partners whose marriage is recognized in another state.

Bill to redefine marriage to be introduced in Pennsylvania

“The Most Ingenious Attack on Gay Marriage Bans”

    John Culhane at Slate: The most ingenious of the lot is a modest suit filed last week in Philadelphia. Palladino v. Corbett is the first case to attack a state law that declares a same-sex marriage from another state “void.” That challenge is quite likely to succeed. If it does, it will effectively tear down the whole edifice of refusing to recognize same-sex marriage, and serve as a model for attacks across the country.
