Former Same-Sex Partner Granted Visitation

"The Minnesota Supreme Court today affirmed a district judge's decision granting visitation rights to the former partner of a woman who adopted two children. However, the court also concluded the district judge should not have ordered one of the women to attend counseling.

Marilyn Johnson and Nancy SooHoo, a Minneapolis couple, broke up in 2003 after 22 years together. During their relationship, Johnson adopted two children from China, but records indicate the two women co-parented the children, the Supreme Court ruling said."
