Utah Supreme Court lifts stay on same-sex adoption cases
The Utah Supreme Court lifted a stay on same-sex adoption cases, Utah State Courts communications director Nancy Volmer confirmed.
In May, Utah Supreme Court issued a stay of several district court judges’ orders to the Utah Department of Health requiring the issuance of birth certificates in same-sex parent adoptions.
The stay came in response to the Utah Attorney General’s Office filing a petition intended to give the health department and adopting parties certainty and clarity about whether the department may legally issue amended birth certificates in same-sex adoptions if directed by court order.
