A gay couple from Northampton County are seeking further legal action against Pennsylvania's same-sex marriage ban.

A gay couple from Northampton County are seeking further legal action against Pennsylvania's same-sex marriage ban.

Tim Hare and Earl Ball are part of an effort seeking an immediate federal court injunction against the Pennsylvania law barring same-sex marriages.

The couple say this legal action is needed in addition to the ACLU lawsuit filed against the state earlier this month.

They say the ACLU lawsuit does not seek the immediate injunction and could be tied up in court for years.
