Judge Rules Gay Couple May Sue Adoption.com for Discrimination
Michael Christopher Bryan

In a decision issued yesterday, a California federal district court judge ruled a lawsuit filed against Adoption.com, accusing the company of discriminating against same-sex couples, can proceed to trial.

U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton ruled San Jose, Calif. residents Rich and Michael Butler could sue Adoption.com under a California law which prohibits discrimination by businesses based on sexual orientation.

Adoption.com is the largest adoption-related Internet business in the U.S.
Among other for-profit services, Adoption.com permits prospective adoptive parents to post their personal profiles in hopes of connecting with potential birth mothers.
