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. β€œTo 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.
