Clerk: Marriage law 'suspect'
About 135 same-sex couples have obtained marriage licenses in Montgomery County since the register of wills decided to issue them last month.
Democrat D. Bruce Hanes calls the state's one-man, one-woman marriage law unconstitutional. His brief also cites the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act.
Gov. Corbett's administration has gone to Commonwealth Court to try to stop Hanes. The state Health Department challenge said Hanes' actions could cause serious harm.
