Wisconsin Supreme Court Refuses Challenge To Domestic Partnerships

Earlier this month, the Wisconsin Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to that state’s new domestic partnership law for same-sex couples.

The law took effect in August, allowing couples to register at the county level as domestic partners.  The law allows couples to obtain about 40 of the 150 rights afforded to married couples under Wisconsin law.  The law was challenged by Wisconsin Family Action, which argued that the domestic partnership law violated Wisconsin’s ban on gay marriage.

The Court did not state a reason why it was declining the case.
