Kerrigan & Mock, et al. v. Connecticut Department of Public Health
As we await the decision from the California Supreme Court (which is expected by June this summer) regarding the pending same sex marriage cases, another case is pending in Connecticut regarding the same issue.
Connecticut created civil unions in 2005, but same sex couples are currently challenging the law under the state constitution's due process and equal protection clauses. See N.Y. Times Article dated March 17, 2008.
