Israeli gay man denied partner's inheritance
October 22 2003 11:00 PM ET
An Israeli tribunal ruled that a gay man cannot claim his deceased partner's inheritance, the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot reported on Wednesday. After his 70-year-old longtime companion passed away, and although there was no designated heir but also no will in his favor, the unnamed man invoked an Israeli law that recognizes an inheritance right for unmarried sexual partners. But the judge rejected the argument, deeming that the man was not in a position to loosely interpret the law, which applies only to heterosexual couples.
