Today is the deadline for Montgomery county’s Register of Wills to file written legal arguments defending his decision to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in defiance of the state’s marriage law. A legal brief is due in Commonwealth Court today from lawyers representing Register of Wills Bruce Hanes outlining his reasoning for defying state law which defines marriage as between a man and a woman.
