Montana Court: Same-sex parent has custody rights

September 30, 2008
A Missoula District Court judge on Monday confirmed Michelle Kulstad's custody rights to children she raised for years with a same-sex partner, who then sought sole custody when the relationship ended. “To discriminate further against Ms. Kulstad because of her sexual preference in this day and age is no different than telling a person to go to the back of the bus because of her skin color,” District Judge Ed McLean wrote.
