Abstract

This brief, with an introduction by Prof. Barbara Cox, was written by her and filed with the Wisconsin Supreme Court on behalf of the National Center for Lesbian Rights. That case involved a custody and visitation claim filed by a non-biological parent of H.S.H-K, who had participated in the decision to have and raise the child with the child's biological parent. The court granted the petition and in doing so, became the first state supreme court to recognize the visitation rights of a non-biological lesbian parent.
