Judge: Lesbian couple can proceed with Michigan adoption ban lawsuit

Judge Lesbian couple can proceed with Michigan adoption ban lawsuit
Detroit — A federal judge Monday refused to dismiss a lawsuit filed by two lesbians that challenges a state ban on adoption by unmarried couples.

The order comes five days after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that has prevented married gay couples from receiving tax, health and retirement benefits that are usually available to married couples.

U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman cited last week’s Supreme Court ruling in which justices expressed concern that discriminatory legislation relegates same-sex relationships to a second-tier status and impairs the rights of tens of thousands of children being raised by same-sex couples.
