New York's Highest Court to Rule on Recognition of Same-Sex Marriages Contracted Outside the State

04/01/09 Leonard Link:

New York Law School Professor Arthur Leonard writes:

"The New York Court of Appeals will finally weigh in on the question of legal recognition by New York of same-sex marriages contracted elsewhere. On March 31, 2009, the court granted leave to appeal in decisions from the Appellate Division, 2nd and 3rd Departments, that had rejected challenges backed by the Alliance Defense Fund to the actions of government officials recognizing such marriages. The cases will be argued in the fall."
