Pennsylvania - Google MapsA marriage equality lawsuit in Federal Court will be heard on June 9th, 2014.

ABC News reports:

A federal judge Friday set June 9 as the trial date for a lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania’s gay-marriage ban after rejecting a request to delay the proceeding. U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III also set a timetable for pre-trial motions and other paperwork to be filed before the trial at the federal courthouse in Harrisburg. Jones said a defense request to delay the trial until August would be unnecessary. “I’m an optimist by nature,” he said.

Take a look at a map – Pennsylvania is the last state in the Northeast without marriage equality. If they pass it, we’re just two states away (Ohio and Indiana) from connecting those states to the midwest states who now offer it.
