More than two years after marriage equality came to the State of Wisconsin, in September 2016, the Honorable Judge Barbara Crabb of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin ruled that the State of Wisconsin must issue birth certificates reflecting both same-sex spouses as parents of their children born to one of the spouses since Crabb's marriage equality ruling on June 6, 2014. This victory was achieved by the attorneys at Lambda Legal and cooperating local attorneys, including Tamara Packard. The Court has also issued an injunction, which describes the steps families should follow to obtain two-parent birth certificates.
