The Legal Intelligencer: No Wedding Bell Blues

May 4, 2007

Shannon Duffy covers LGD’s successful representation in Buck v. Stankovic, in a page one article entitled No Wedding Bell Blues in The Legal Intelligencer. A federal judge ruled that a county official cannot deny a marriage license to a couple simply because an applicant does not have a current visa or green card.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Pennsylvania brought the case against Dorothy Stankovic, the Register of Wills for Luzerne County, on behalf of Pennsylvania native and U.S. citizen Heather Buck, and Jose Arias-Maravilla, a citizen of Mexico.

LGD partners John Grogan and Ned Diver filed the case on behalf of the couple.
