After gay rights ruling, 2 moms to be on baby's birth certificate
The Associated Press

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. - In some of the first legal fallout from a state Supreme Court ruling that gives same-sex couples in New Jersey access to the same rights as married couples, two women will be listed on the birth certificate of a baby born this week in Burlington County.

In a closed family court proceeding on Monday, a day before the child was born, the state and the women agreed that both women should be listed as the baby's parents in light of the landmark high court ruling last month. A judge agreed with the state and the women, lawyers said.

The Supreme Court last month ruled that gay and lesbian couples should have the same rights in New Jersey as married couples. But the court left working out the details - including the important one of whether the unions should be called "marriages" - to lawmakers and gave them six months to act.
