The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

A JEWISH cou­ple who want civil part­ner­ships to be avail­able for het­ero­sex­u­als launched a le­gal chal­lenge in the High Court this week. Academics Re­becca Ste­in­feld and Charles Kei­dan, from west Lon­don, ar­gue that the Civil Part­ner­ship Act 2004 is “in­com­pat­i­ble with equal­ity law”. The pair, who have an eight-month-old baby, said the govern­ment was pre­vent­ing them and thou­sands of other op­po­site-sex cou­ples from choos­ing to form a civil part­ner­ship.
