Lesbian Mother Loses Ohio Custody Court Battle

01/22/10 Gay Couples Law Blog, by law school student Gideon Alper:
A lesbian mother that took care of a child was denied parental rights by an Ohio court, but a sperm donor that had almost no contact was given them ... In the court's opinion [PDF], the judge recognizes that that the non-birth mother acted as a parent while the couple was together, including the facts that the non-birth mother's name was on the birth certificate and that she had been able to make health and support decisions for the child.
