The U.S. Supreme Court has reversed an Alabama court's decision not to recognize adoption by a lesbian woman.
The Supreme Court unanimously voted to recognize the rights of the adoptive mother in the case known as V.L. v. E.L.
In the case between two women identified in court papers only by their initials, V.L. sued E.L., the biological mother of three children, for visitation rights.
