Grim outlook for transgender rights?

By | March 27, 2017

So much has changed since that day in October when we all rejoiced at the announcement that the Supreme Court of the United States would hear G. G. v. Gloucester County School Board and review a decision of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals regarding the discrimination of transgender people in the educational system. We thought this case was potentially setting precedent that sexual identification is a classification eligible for legal protection. So much has changed since then that the very basis of the case and why SCOTUS agreed to hear it has been jeopardized.

The beginning of an LGBT civil-rights rollback?

By | March 27, 2017

I won’t mince words: Each day, values that we hold dear — inclusion, tolerance and equality — are in danger like never before.

2016 Year in Review

By | March 27, 2017

Well, congratulations! If for nothing else, congratulations on surviving one of the most tumultuous, confusing, disappointing and momentous years … ever.

Upholding the Rule of Law: Kim Davis Versus D. Bruce Hanes

By | September 14, 2015

Kim Davis, a clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, disagrees with the settled law of the land and is refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex Kentucky couples in violation of a federal court order. As an elected county officer, whose role is ministerial and not judicial, Davis’ acts of civil disobedience are in direct contravention of the laws that she has been elected to uphold.

By | July 17, 2015

Last week, a Philadelphia judge denied the dissolution of an out-of-state civil union between two women who have been separated for more than a decade, dashing the pair’s hopes that Pennsylvania’s legalization of same-sex marriage last year would pave the way for their divorce. It’s issues like those that have family law lawyers warning against just any attorney claiming expertise in the area of LGBT legal affairs.
