Court of Appeals ruled last week that people who are in a same-sex partnership are now equally protected against domestic violence as people in opposite-sex relationships. Simmons said the ruling stemmed from a case back inwhere a woman in a lesbian relationship, who was a domestic violence survivor, was denied a protective order because of her same-sex relationship.
The ruling said the state law created a heightened potential of harassment or physical abuse in the LGBTQ community that was not in keeping with the state goals of improving public safety. Simmons believes there is still more work to be done to update laws and policy to increase equity for all.
