Heather Browne, a spokeswoman for Texas Attorney General John Cornyn ruled last week that state law does not require or permit county clerks to accept domestic partner registries. Comyn's office, said the legal opinion is limited to interpreting existing statutes about similar affidavits. Comyn's opinion does not say whether county clerks can or cannot register domestic partners, she said, but maintains that "it's not their duty," Browne said. "Opinions issued from this office are nonbinding legal documents. They're not something someone has to follow by law and put into statute," she said. "It's just the opinion of this office, clarification of the law on a certain issue." Debeauvior said Travis County officials plan to study the opinion, but added that she expects to continue accepting affidavits from same-sex partners. "Now that we've gotten the attorney general's opinion, we're going to read through it very clearly," DeBeauvoir said. "But at this point in time, I'm not anticipating any big changes." McGowan said he viewed the opinion as a step backward for Texas. "Naturally, I'm disappointed," he told the San Antonio Express-News. "In the broad view of things, this is a an example of just how far behind the times Texas is. With private employers across the country and in our state offering domestic partnership benefits, Texas is going in the wrong direction." Leaders of Lesbian Gay Rights Lobby of Texas say they are not overly surprised about the opinion. "I'm not surprised by the ... opinion, and I don't really think it will have that much effect on gays and lesbians in Texas," said Steve Atkinson, co-chairman of the gay lobby's board of directors. Comyn's opinion will have no effect on existing statues that restrict marriage to a man and woman, nor will it alter Texas Family Code that precludes the state from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Browne said. m mi m voice All material in Houston Voice is protected by federal copyright law and may not be reproduced without the written consent of Houston Voice.

TX 77006 713-529-8490 Police arrest suspects in Montrose shooting From staff reports Two men have been arrested and charged in connection with the Nov. 28 shooting of a Houston woman, police said Wednesday. Kevin Albert Rivas, 17, and a juvenile were arrested this week and charged with attempted capital murder after Pasadena police spotted one of the men in the car of Tracey Lynn Deel. Her Honda Accord had been missing since Deel was attacked at a fast food restaurant, shot several times and left for dead in the 10,000 block of East Haven Road. Last Sunday, Pasadena police arrested two juvenile suspects for shoplifting and discovered that the vehicle they were driving belonged to Deel. One of the suspects admitted his role in Deel's attack and allegedly implicated Rivas, police said. Police arrested Rivas at his Pasadena home on Monday. Authorities have said two young Hispanic males attacked Deel at Whataburger, 3712 South Shepherd, about 3:55 a.m. and ordered about $9.55 in food. The attack came less than two hours after Deel left Chances, a Montrose bar for lesbians. Deel called a friend about 2:30 a.m. Sunday and said she was at Chances, which was preparing to close, police said. About two hours later, Deel—who had been shot several times by a .22-caliber pistol—managed to crawl more than 300 yards to awaken residents of an apartment complex at 10280 Windmill Lakes and ask for help. Friends in Houston's lesbian community have rallied to raise funds for Deel's medical recovery and joined with her father to post a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of her attackers. CrimeStoppers has offered a $1,000 reward in the case. Tracey Lynn Deel was shot several times after being attacked at a South Shepard fast food restaurant Nov. 28.
