Victory for Wis. Domestic Partnerships


The Wisconsin state supreme court has rejected a lawsuit challenging the Badger State's domestic-partner registry.

The court offered no explanation for its decision in an order issued Tuesday upholding the registry that offers same-sex couples legal benefits, reports the Associated Press.

Wisconsin Family Action, a conservative group, filed a lawsuit in July claiming the registry violates the state constitution's ban on marriage or marriage-like recognition for same-sex couples.

The group asked the state supreme court to take the case directly without going through trial or appeals courts because of the issue's statewide significance.

More than 900 couples have signed up for the registry since it went into effect in August.
