Visitation Rights of Same-Sex Parent Considered by Minnesota Supreme Court

"Marilyn Johnson and Nancy SooHoo, like a growing number of gay and lesbian couples in Minnesota, became parents through international adoptions a decade ago. Now separated, they are embroiled in a child-visitation dispute that has reached the Minnesota Supreme Court. The court's decision could set a precedent in a new frontier in family law: determining the future visitation rights of nontraditional parents. SooHoo never legally adopted the children, but was granted visitation privileges in 2005. Johnson, who is the sole legal parent, appealed those privileges to the state's highest court."
