Yesterday, the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona certified as a class action Lambda Legal's lawsuit on behalf of lesbian and gay Arizona state employees fighting a move by the Arizona Legislature to eliminate health care coverage for their families.
The U.S. Supreme Court today denied a request by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer to review a U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that maintains family health coverage for lesbian and gay State employees.
Lambda Legal today issued a legal analysis documenting the ability of Bisbee and other Arizona municipalities to enact ordinances recognizing and protecting the committed family relationships of adult couples regardless of marital status, gender or sexual orientation.
The Court has now decided to hear one of the challenges to the provision of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) barring federal recognition of same-sex couples’ marriages and also to hear the challenge to California’s Proposition 8. What does it mean?
Lambda Legal represents seven lesbian and gay state employees who are challenging a move by the Arizona Legislature to eliminate the equal health care benefits that those employees rely on to safeguard their families' health—just as their heterosexual colleagues do.
