BONICS BLOGS: GOV of PA won’t appeal Same Sex Marriage


Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Corbett, released a statement on Wednesday saying that there will not be an appeal to the landmark decision to legalize gay marriage in the state.

Corbett says that the ‘case is extremely unlikely to succeed on appeal’ and that he still believes that ‘marriage is between one man and one woman’, his duties as Governor require him to follow the laws of the Courts and judge how successful an appeal attempt will be.

Corbett ends his official statement by saying he hopes the issue of same sex marriage ‘continues to be addressed in our society’ and that ‘all involved be treated with respect’.Screen Shot 2014-05-21 at 5.50.36 PM
