North Carolina lesbian couple wins settlement from the state

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – A nonprofit legal group says a lesbian couple in North Carolina has reached a settlement with the state after

they were denied birth certificates listing them both as parents of their two sons. Lambda Legal said state officials have agreed to

amend their documents to add the names of both Melissa and Meredith Weiss. The settlement comes more than a year after the

U.S. Supreme Court ruled that everyone has a fundamental right to the legal recognition marriage provides to families and children.
