(Harrisburg) -- Lawyers in a key federal court challenge to Pennsylvania's law that bans same-sex marriage say the state's lawyers are using delay tactics and are making unreasonable and intrusive requests for information.
Witold J. Walczak of the American Civil Liberties Union told the judge in a letter today the requests demand irrelevant, highly private and sensitive information.
Meanwhile, he tells U.S. District Judge John Jones that the state's lawyers are refusing to meet to discuss the information requests.
The July 9th lawsuit seeks to force Pennsylvania to allow same-sex marriage and recognize the marriages of same-sex couples who were legally wed in other jurisdictions.
The firm Governor Corbett's office hired, Lamb McErlane of West Chester, says plaintiffs' lawyers didn't explain their concerns before today's deadline to respond to the requests, and meeting before it seemed premature.
