The Wyoming Supreme Court ventures into the culture war with two decisions issued today.
One decision upholds the constitutionality of drug testing students who wish to participate in extracurricular activities; the other holds that the Wyoming courts have jurisdiction to entertain a petition for divorce of a same-sex couple lawfully wed in Canada:
Two Wyoming residents are seeking a legal remedy to dissolve a legal relationship
created under the laws of Canada. We find nothing in Wyoming statutes or policy that
closes the doors of the district courts to them. The district court has subject-matter
jurisdiction to entertain their petition for divorce.
