Lesbian Couple Married in Massachusetts Suing Pennsylvania for Recognition

Looking to overturn state law banning same-sex marriages


A lesbian couple who married under Massachusetts law and then moved to Pennsylvania for work sued their new home state on Thursday, demanding legal recognition for their union.

Pennsylvania doesn't recognize gay marriages or perform them. Cara Palladino and Isabelle Barker are hoping their lawsuit will overturn that, The Associated Press reported.
