CSGS Presents Oral Argument to the MO Supreme Court on Same-Sex Partner Divorce Action

On December 3, 2014, Capes Sokol presented oral argument to the Missouri Supreme Court in In re the Marriage of: M.S. v. D.S., in which our client sought a divorce from his same-sex partner, and the St. Louis County Circuit Court dismissed his petition due to lack of constitutional and statutory authority based upon Missouri’s DOMA provisions.

For more information about the case, a summary provided by the Court, as well as the briefs filed in this matter, is available at: Case Summary for December 3, 2014
