Spanish Judge Booted for Subverting Gay Adoption Law

“A Spanish court says a judge has been suspended for attempting to thwart a woman’s effort to adopt her lesbian partner’s child. The Superior Justice Court in the southeast Murcia region says it suspended Judge Fernando Ferrin Calamita for two years. The court also ordered the Catholic judge to pay the woman €6,000 ($8,400) in compensation. The woman had been trying to adopt the child born to her partner after they were married in 2005.” [Boston Herald]
