Announcement: January 29, 2014. New York Court Ruling May Hamper Gay Parents. Margarita López Torres, a Brooklyn Surrogate's Court Judge, ruled on January 6 that because New York State had legalized gay marriage and allowed a married gay couple to both be listed as parents on their child's birth certificate, she would not grant the non-biological mother a second parent adoption. Judge Torres's reasoning was that granting such an adoption would mean that "true marriage equality remains yet to be attained [and that] a same-sex marriage remains somehow insufficient to establish a parent-child relationship." However, sympathetic we are to this view, we share the view of Susan Sommer, a lawyer with the Lambda Legal Defense Fund who said: "It's very important for this couple to have an adoption, because the presumption of parentage may not be respected if they leave the state. We continue to live in a country that has a patchwork of respect and disrespect of same-sex couples." Ms. Sommer will be a speaker at this year's CAP Conference.
