This month our good friend Kinna Crocker and her colleague, Tate Birnie joined us to talk about a case they handled here in Sonoma County with two women who got married just a week before the Supreme Court ruled on Prop 8. They married early, because one of the women was dying. Kinna and Tate talked about the favorable ruling they got for the surviving spouse. We also celebrated marriage equality coming to Illinois and Hawaii this month.
On the Outbeat Youth segment, we introduce you to Jake Stallman, a bright high school student who survived severe bullying and a death threat. He’s fighting back and helping others who are suffering from bullying. Jake was this year’s recipient of the Spirit of Matthew award from the Matthew Shepard Foundation.
