Kindly STFU........if the couple should decide to sue, and they probably shouldn't.........it would be the Town office who would lose because of the discriminatory nature in which they failed to do their job!!!

Well Sickers, let me guess. Your New Year's resolution was to be even more of a hateful bigot and pathetic loser. Congratulations on wasting no time. Of course it's not all that difficult when most of your fellow trailer trash are still sleeping off hangovers.

The notories aren't aren't required to marry anyone, so there isn't use in suing. It would be difficult to prove they refused this couple just because they were a same-sex couple.

I don't believe that there was "misunderstanding" on anyone's part in this incident.

You lose. Maine voted FOR SSM.

But feel free to clog the courts with frivolous lawsuits while you shop for one of your activist judges who'll support you.
