Vermont Judge Upholds Decision To Allow Gay Unions

Two months ago, Vermont became the first state to pass a civil union bill granting gay couples the most comprehensive package of domestic partner benefits in the nation. The law was soon challenged, but to no avail.

Yesterday, an injunction to stop ‘gay marriages’ was struck down by Superior Court Judge Stephen Martin. Gay and lesbian couples are expected to seek civil union licenses during the upcoming holiday weekend.
