Assistant Dean and Director of Student Funding Isabelle Barker and Director of Donor Relations and Stewardship Cara Palladino have made headlines for a lawsuit they filed Sept. 26 seeking to have their Massachusetts marriage recognized by the state of Pennsylvania.
From the Associated Press article:
“Cara Palladino and Isabelle Barker lived in Massachusetts when they got married in 2005 and moved to the Philadelphia area later that year to work at Bryn Mawr College. They had a son in January 2009.
The couple sued the state Thursday, naming Gov. Tom Corbett and Attorney General Kathleen Kane as defendants. Their federal lawsuit — at least the fourth pending lawsuit regarding gay marriage in Pennsylvania — seeks to declare unconstitutional the state statute barring recognition of same-sex marriages.”
