A Utah court has ended a lawsuit filed by a lesbian couple to get the mothers’ names on their child’s birth certificate.
According to a local affiliate:
In a joint agreement filed with in U.S. District Court and obtained by FOX 13 on Sunday, the ACLU of Utah and the Utah Attorney General’s Office acknowledged that Kami and Angie Roe had received a birth certificate that included Angie Roe’s name as a parent of their child, Lucy. Lawyers for the two sides also agreed to make the judge’s injunction permanent, effectively ending the case.”
The ruling opens up the doors for other gay couples to place both parents’ names on birth certificates.
The lesbian couple, sued the state after the health department wouldn’t allow the couple to both be on the birth certificate, only the biological mother, even though the two were legally wed in Utah.
