A lawyer for a New Hope gay couple says that she soon will ask a Bucks County judge to act on a lawsuit seeking to bar the couple from marrying.
Malia Brink, a Philadelphia lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union, said in an interview that the filing is likely "toward the end of this month."
In Washington today, the U.S. Senate is to vote on a proposal to amend the Constitution to ban same-sex marriages. On May 14, 12 Pennsylvania state representatives and a Bedford County firm sought the same result when they filed suit in Bucks County Court.
