New York Court Rules in Lesbian Parent Cases

"New York State’s highest court ruled in two cases Tuesday that nonbiological parents involved in same-sex relationships have rights similar to those of biological parents. But the court limited its rulings, ultimately leaving it up to the State Legislature to decide whether to amend state law to grant nonbiological parents full custody rights." The New York Times reports on the Court of Appeals decisions. The Advocate also covers the story here, and Prof. Arthur Leonard from New York Law School has an extensive discussion of the two opinions here.
