More on the little girl at the heart of the same-sex couple custody dispute

On Saturday, the Winchester paper had this article on the child whose custody is being litigated in Virginia in a dispute between two women who were parties to a civil union in Vermont. The article notes that at the last hearing, the lawyer for the birth mother in Virginia argued that the woman from Vermont lacks standing to contest custody - which pretty much gets to the nub of the matter, I'd say, if it means the Court will have to decide as a matter of law whether the Vermont woman has standing to litigate custody by virtue of the civil union in Vermont.

The Richmond paper had this article ("It's Virginia vs. Vermont incustody case," 8/14/04) on the case.
