Pa. gay marriage lawsuit could get trial date

By: The Associated Press
HARRISBURG, Pa. --

A federal judge in Harrisburg is holding a status conference on a lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania's gay-marriage ban and could set a trial date to hear it.

U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III was to meet with lawyers in the case Friday.

Defendants include the state departments of Health and Revenue and the Bucks County register of wills. 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.
