Neb. Inmate, Transgender Partner Lose 2nd Lawsuit

ne-state-pen(AP) — A Nebraska prison inmate and his transgendered partner have lost another round in their legal fight to be able to visit each other and get married.

A federal judge rejected the couple’s lawsuit challenging a Nebraska constitutional amendment that defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

The judge said a previous Appeals Court ruling upheld Nebraska’s marriage amendment, so the lawsuit couldn’t proceed.

The prisoner, Harold Wilson, and Gracy Sedlak also had a state lawsuit thrown out because they failed to pay an $82 court fee. Sedlak is a former inmate who previously identified as a man named John Jirovsky.

Wilson is serving a 56- to 170-year prison sentence on attempted murder, kidnapping and sexual assault charges.
