Arguments heard in Wisconsin domestic partnership case

Wisconsin Supreme Court signBY The Seattle Lesbian

Wednesday Lambda Legal presented oral arguments on behalf of Fair Wisconsin and five same-sex couples in the Wisconsin Supreme Court, asking the court to uphold the state’s domestic partnership law as constitutional.

“The domestic partnership law in Wisconsin is without question constitutional,” said Christopher Clark, Senior Staff Attorney for Lambda Legal. “The limited protections provided by domestic partnerships are a long way from the important rights, benefits and responsibilities associated with marriage. To suggest that the two types of relationships are impermissibly similar is a discriminatory stretch of the imagination.”
