K.M. v. E.G.

A lesbian couple, K.M. and E.G., had twins together through ovum-sharing, with an egg removed from K.M., fertilized in vitro, and implanted in her partner E.G. The couple raised the twins together for several years. When the couple separated, however, E.G. (the birth mother) refused to allow K.M. (the genetic mother) to see the children. In August 2005, the California Supreme Court held that both women are legal parents to their twin girls. NCLR, Lambda Legal, and other LGBT organizations filed an amicus brief supporting K.M, who was represented by the Hersh Family Law Practice.
