Nebraska Won’t Let Lesbians Divorce, But Will Determine Who Gets Custody Of Their Child

In Nebraska, District Judge Randall Rehmeier ruled a lesbian couple married in Vermont in 2003 was not entitled to a divorce in his state, because recognition of gay unions is prohibited there. That didn’t stop Rehmeier from ruling on child custody and child support, because the best interests of the child are at stake or something. (The biological mother will have full custody, and her still-wife must pay $200 a month in child support.)
