Discussion of: (1) a retroactive application of Windsor that may save a pension benefit for a lesbian widow; (2) an unanimous decision from the New York Appellate Division rejecting all of the statutory and constitutional defenses raised by the owners of an upstate wedding venue that discriminated against a same-sex couple; (3) panel and en banc rulings from a Texas appeals court denying standing to a transgender man seeking custody and visitation of children adopted by his former partner; and (4) a case raising the question of whether disability discrimination laws can shield HIV-positive individuals from being fired for using medical marijuana as recommended by a doctor.
