2 Dads Case Supreme Court, An organization of gay rights is seeking review of the Supreme Court on the case of a gay couple who wanted as their names appear on the birth certificate of the adopted child of Louisiana in New York.
Lambda Legal, said Monday that sought review of the Court in the case of adoptive parents Oren Adar and Mickey Ray Smith, who now reside in the Orlando area, Florida, filed a lawsuit to obtain the names of the certificate.
Earlier this year, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals U.S. ruled in favor of a registrar of Louisiana, who insisted that only the name of a father could go on the certificate?
In Louisiana, adopted children to obtain new birth certificates with the names of their new parents on them. However, the state does not allow adoptions by unmarried couples. The State contends that putting the names of the men on the birth certificate would violate state law.
A U.S. District Court judge ruled in favor of men and a panel of three judges of the Circuit upheld the sentence of the fifth in 2010. The State sought and won a new hearing by the full court and the judges heard arguments Jan. 16.
The Fifth U.S. Circuit April 2011 ruling said the decision of the registrar, not the list of men does not violate the child’s right to equal protection under the law, and does not deny the legal recognition of the adoption of New York by men.
