The N.C. Attorney General had said Amendment One was going to create a bunch of lawsuits arising over its constitutionality. Here’s one:

A group of same-sex couples in North Carolina have filed a lawsuit against the state in an attempt to give their children two legal parents. The state outlawed same-sex second-parent adoptions in 2010, a ruling the suit calls "fundamentally wrong." The suit says that by denying both parents the right to adoption, the state is failing to fully protect children if something happens to the custodial parent.  See article in Charlotte Observer by Gary Wright:  http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2012/06/14/3313936/aclu-files-same-sex-lawsuit-over.html

The case involved attempts by former State Sen. Julia Boseman, D-New Hanover, the legislature’s first openly gay member, to adopt her former partner’s biological son. The ACLU’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in Greensboro, comes just weeks after North Carolina voters approved a constitutional amendment that states that marriage between one man and one woman is the only legal union in the state. North Carolina has had a law banning same-sex marriages for 16 years.

It will be interesting how history views these times in 20 years.
