Sonoma County Gay Rights Suit Settles

Posted by msch on Jul 23, 2010 1:40:00 PM

Greene v. Sonoma County, which involved claims that a county had inappropriately separated and sold the property of an elderly gay couple, settled for $600K. Santa Rosa's local newspaper quoted the county's lawyer as being confident that there was never any discrimination, but conceding that there were procedural errors in the sale of the property, and suggesting the dispute might have been avoided if the men had been able to legally marry.

CVN was approved to webcast the Greene v. Sonoma County trial live.
