The Supreme Court on Monday set aside an Alabama Supreme Court order denying a lesbian mother visitation rights to her three children.
The two women involved in the case – referred to in court documents as V.L. and E.L. – are not married and have since split. While they live in Alabama, in 2007 they set up a temporary home in Georgia thinking that the state would be more accommodating to their adoption request.
On September 18, the Alabama Supreme Court issued an order refusing to recognize V.L.’s Georgia adoption order and declaring it void, stripping her of all visitation rights.
