Lost in all the drama of the past week was an important decision out of New York. In the case of T.V. (Anonymous), et al., v. New York State Department of Health, the Supreme Court of the State of New York (their appellate court) recognized the right of a genetic mother using a gestational carrier to have her name placed on her child’s birth certificate. You can read the slip opinion here.
This is a very significant decision out of New York and hopefully the first step towards eliminating their prohibition on compensated surrogacy. Kudos to my colleague Melissa Brisman and her team of attorneys for this significant accomplishment.
