USA, Connecticut: Lesbian Asks for Retroactive Marriage Rights

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

Connecticut MapA woman in Connecticut whose partner died because of medical malpractice is asking the state’s high court for retroactive marriage rights.

The Courant reports:

A woman, whose same sex, domestic partner died as a result of medical malpractice, told the state Supreme Court Tuesday that she is entitled for constitutional reasons to damages for loss of consortium – even though she and her partner were not married. Charlotte Stacey is asking the state’s highest court to depart from established Connecticut law holding that consortium can exist only between legally married individuals. Stacy wants the court to grant her what amounts to a retroactive, individual exception to that rule because she and her partner wanted to be married at the time the malpractice is alleged to have occurred, but were prevented by the state’s “unconstitutional” prohibition against same sex marriage, which was then in effect.

It’s an interesting case, and highlights the problems with these bans – sometimes relief comes too late. So who, if anyone, should be held responsible?
