Profs: NJ Civil Union Law Cannot Be Fixed

More than 125 professors from 48 law schools around the country have signed a letter saying New Jersey’s civil union law cannot be fixed.

The professors, including New Jersey former Public Advocate Ron Chen, say the law granting gay couples the benefits of marriage without the title will never be equal to the right to marry.

The letter was sent to Gov. Chris Christie and the Legislature, as they consider legislation allowing same-sex couples to wed.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is hearing testimony on the measure Tuesday.

A gay marriage bill was defeated in the Senate two years ago. Christie says he will look at the bill if it gains momentum.

The governor nominated an openly gay black man to the state Supreme Court on Monday.
