Today the New Jersey Supreme Court held that committed same-sex couples must be afforded on equal terms the same rights and benefits enjoyed by opposite-sex couples under the civil marriage statutes. The name to be given to the statutory scheme that provides full rights and benefits to same-sex couples, whether marriage or some other term, is a matter left to the democratic process.
DignityUSA is proud to have been an "Amici" signatory to an Amicus Brief on behalf of the successful seven same-sex couples.
