Kerrigan & Mock, et al. vs. State of Connecticut et al.

(October 2008).   In an historic decision, Connecticut’s Supreme Court ruled on October 10 that gay and lesbian couples in the Constitution State deserve marriage -- not domestic partnerships or civil unions, but full and equal marriage and the respect and security that only marriage provides.

The ruling, in GLAD’s case Kerrigan & Mock et all v. Connecticut Department of Public Health, makes Connecticut the second state in New England—and the third in the United States—to swing open the doors to true equality for lesbian and gay couples.

Below are some pictures of us, our son Eli and our co-plaintiffs at the press conference on Friday 10/10/08, the day the ruling was issued. (Click thumbnail for larger images)
