Gay Widower Receives Late Husband’s Estate

“A New York man who’s the surviving partner in a same-sex marriage [performed in Canada] is legally entitled to inherit his late spouse’s estate, a Manhattan judge has ruled. The decision by Surrogate’s Court Judge Kristin Booth Glen recognizing Craig Leiby as the sole heir of Ken Ranftle’s multimillion-dollar estate is believed to be the first of its kind in New York.” [NYP]
