Wisconsin, USA: Appeals Court Upholds Domestic Partner Benefits

Written by scott on April 5th, 2013

Wisconsin MapA Wisconsin state appeals court upheld the state’s domestic partnership law. Lambda Legal reports:

“The court has affirmed what we have maintained all along – it is ridiculous to suggest that a domestic partnership law could be considered anything closely resembling a marriage for purposes of state law,” said Christopher Clark, Senior Staff Attorney in Lambda Legal’s Midwest Regional Office. “In fact, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals rejected the plaintiffs’ arguments as ‘nonsense.’ We fought off this ugly attack against the rights and protections currently available to same-sex couples and their families in Wisconsin – a sweet holiday present to loving couples and families.”

One small victory for LGBT rights. It’s a shame that we even have to fight these folks for basic rights like these.
