Group plans to sue if Doyle's proposed domestic partner protections approved
A family rights' group says the state can expect a lawsuit if it approves the domestic partner protections in Gov. Jim Doyle's new state budget.
Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action believes the courts would rule them unconstitutional and her group has lawyers looking into it.
Under Doyle's plan, domestic couples would register in their home counties to get legal protections. They could get family and medical leave to care for an ill partner.
