The Arkansas Supreme Court stood up for gay and lesbian parents yesterday.

Joe.My.God reports:

Another great win today by the ACLU: The Arkansas Supreme Court today reversed a lower court child custody order that prohibited a parent from having overnight visitation with his child in the presence of his long-term domestic partner. The ruling ends a widespread practice in Arkansas custody cases of courts automatically barring parents from living with an unmarried partner regardless of the circumstances.

So Arkansas courts can no longer mandate that your partner move out when your child from your previous marriage comes to visit. A big step for LGBT couples!
