Next, we will chat about a New York case where a gay dad filled a cert petition that seeks to overturn protections for non-bio/non-adoptive parents. Finally, we discuss the latest on a conversion therapy case in New Jersey state court where the provider of this discredited, fraudulent practice just won’t go away.
