As was recently reported in the Austin American Stateman, Travis County District Court Judge Scott Perkins declined the Texas Attorney Generals request to intervene in Austin Travis County's first same-sex divorce case. In doing so, a decision made by Judge Perkins in February to grant the divorce to two women who had married in another state will for the moment stand.
Interestly, Judge Perkins questioned Texas Attorney Genral Abbott's decision to pursue the case, in doing so citing that his office is invovled in same-sex divorce litigation in Dallas.
