COURT SAYS: SAME-SEX COUPLES DESERVE RIGHTS, LEGISLATURE PICKS THE NAME

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

October 25, 2006 Trenton: The New Jersey Lesbian and Gay Coalition is thrilled by the recent decision of the State Supreme Court which recognizes that providing to “committed same-sex couples the financial and social benefits and privileges given to their married heterosexual counterparts” is mandated under the State Constitution. The New Jersey State Supreme Court has upheld equal rights for the all citizens. By leaving the “name to be given to the statutory scheme that provides full rights and benefits to same-sex couples, whether marriage or some other term, is a matter [left to the legislature]” we look forward to a speedy process that reflects the diversity of New Jersey. We have faith that all fair-minded citizens of NJ agree with the Court’s decision.
