US Justice Department to expand rights of same-sex couples

Published: 02.08.14, 23:39 / Israel News

Attorney General Eric Holder plans widespread changes within the US Justice Department to benefit same-sex married couples, such as recognizing a legal right for them not to testify against each other in civil and criminal cases, according to excerpts of a speech on Saturday.

 

The changes are designed to keep pushing for gay rights in the United States after a US Supreme Court ruling last year said the federal government cannot refuse to recognize same-sex marriages carried out in states that allow them. (Reuters)
