US: Pennsylvania county to appeal against judge’s order to stop issuing same-sex marriage licences
The county in Pennsylvania recently ordered to stop issuing marriage licences to same-sex couples has said it will file an appeal against the judge’s decision.
Montgomery county on Tuesday said that its solicitor Ray McGarry, is to appeal the state judge’s order to stop county clerk D Bruce Hanes, from issuing the licences, in a move which could push the battle for equal marriage in the state to the Supreme Court.
McGarry said he would file the appeal in the next few days, on behalf of Hanes, the register of wills, who has issued hundreds of marriage licences to same-sex couples, reports the Associated Press.
