Julaine Appling's lengthy interview with Pat Snyder from WSAU concerning the lawsuit against DOYLE regarding statewide domestic partnership registry.
"The domestic partnership registry is substantially similar to marriage", Appling stated in her interview.
As a state, "we passed that amendment (one man/one woman) to our state constitution."
She further said, "Here's the governer putting a provision in the budget that is essentially an end-run around the will of the people and the constitution."
"It creates a new legal status for couples of the same sex..."
Registration provisions are exactly the same legal requirements as marriage requirements, so the reason for the suit is justified as unconstitutional.
"This isn't about equal protation. This is about preserving the institution of marriage."
I applaud Appling's fine interview today and her firm and knowledgeable platform for this interview.
