Surviving Same -Sex Partner in Canadian marriage ruled "spouse"

In a brief opinion, a Surrogate Judge in New York recognized a Canadian same-sex marriage for probate purposes, declaring the surviving partner the "surviving spouse and sole distributee" and thus not requiring process to other members of the decedent's family. A copy of the Kristin Booth Glen's opinion, published in the New York Law Journal, page 27, today, is available here  and the front-page article is available here,
