Ex-lesbian lover wants custody

A mother and ex-lesbian in Virginia might lose custody because a Vermont court says that her ex-lover has some rights.Worldnetdaily reports:
A Vermont court awarded Jenkins "parent-child" contact and visitation. But a Virginia court declared Miller to be the sole parent, ruling the Virginia Marriage Affirmation Act barred recognition of civil unions. ...

Staver pointed out the Miller-Jenkins case is unique because, in addition to dueling federal laws, it represents the first time the courts of two states have issued conflicting decisions over a same-sex union case.
I guess we are going to hear about more cases like this.
