Legal Case

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A Kentucky judge is seeking input from the state attorney general's office before deciding whether a law exempting spouses from testifying against each other applies to two women in a civil union from Vermont.

Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Susan Schultz Gibson says the attorney general's office should be given a chance to respond.

The Courier-Journal reports the case has become the first legal test in the state over forcing same-sex partners to testify against each other.
