Maryland Attorney General To Issue Opinion On Recognition of Marriages Performed Elsewhere

05/31/09 Washington Post:

The attorney general's office in the past has issued less-formal advisory letters to lawmakers stating that Maryland has no obligation to recognize same-sex marriages from other states, citing a state law that defines marriage as being between a man and a woman. [Sen. Richard S.] Madaleno [who requested the opinion] is seeking to learn whether Maryland has the option of recognizing same-sex marriages. Doing so could require action by the governor or General Assembly or both.
