California Supreme Court to Decide What Information Partners Must Tell Each Other About Past High-Risk Sexual Activity

What information marriage partners much provide each other regarding past high risk sexual activity is before the California Supreme Court. At a hearing scheduled for today (Wednesday), the court will hear arguments regarding the legal consequences of a woman's claim that her husband -- a healthy person, by all outward appearances and his own assurances -- infected her with HIV. The lawsuit will require the justices to “weigh health concerns against the right of sexual privacy a quarter century into the AIDS epidemic.”  A written decision is not expected for several weeks.
