Vermont judge grants sole custody of child to nonbiological mother and former lesbian partner

11/24/09 The Burlington Free Press:
A Vermont judge has granted sole custody of a girl to her nonbiological mother in a custody dispute involving a former lesbian couple. Family Court Judge William Cohen awarded custody of the 7-year-old to Janet Jenkins of Fair Haven on Friday after finding the biological mother, Lisa Miller, in contempt of court this year for denying Jenkins access to the girl. Miller, who lives in Virginia and renounced homosexuality after the couple broke up in 2003, plans to appeal.
