USA, Pennsylvania: Lawyer Claims Governor is Immune to Lawsuit on Marriage Equality

Written by scott on October 8th, 2013

Pennsylvania mapIn a transparent attempt to get a lawsuit for marriage equality thrown out of court, a Pennsylvania state lawyer is claiming the plaintiffs can’t sue the Governor.

ABC News reports:

In a brief filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg, William Lamb urged that the claims against Corbett in a pending lawsuit be dismissed. He says the U.S. Constitution prohibits lawsuits against state officials from being filed in federal court without their consent. Lamb also says claims against Corbett and Health Secretary Michael Wolf should be dismissed because case law holds that federal courts have no jurisdiction over cases like this.

Gotta say, Attorney Lamb has balls.
