Lambda fights for Arizona partner benefits

Lambda Legal presented oral arguments in U.S. District Court in Phoenix on June 28 to block a law that strips domestic-partner benefits from gay and lesbian state employees.

Arizona lawmakers eliminated health care for gay state employees’ partners in a budget bill signed by Gov. Jan Brewer last September.

Lambda represents 10 state employees whose partners need the benefits.
