Texas court does about face -- recognizes non-bio mom

Beyond (Straight and Gay) Marriage, by law professor Nancy Polikoff:
A few months ago, I wrote about a Texas appeals court ruling that a nonbio mom could not file for custody or visitation of a child she had co-parented. In a move that surprised everyone, the court reversed itself earlier this month. The nonbio mom had filed a routine petition for rehearing, something almost never granted. The court sat on the petition and then, rather than grant that petition, it released a ruling on its own vacating the earlier judgment and issuing a new the nonbio mom's favor!
