The group fighting Wisconsin’s new domestic partner registry is expressing confidence it will be struck down Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action claims the basis of their legal challenge is sound. A Constitutional Amendment adopted by voters in 2006 bans gay marriage and any similar arrangement. She says the registry for gay couples falls into that similar category.
Appling calls it “look-alike” marriage because many of the requirements for the registry are the same as those for a marriage license.
The State Supreme Court has been asked to rule on whether the registry violates the state Constitution, but justices have not yet said if they’ll take the case.
