Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houston voice.com AUGUST 2, 2002 5 Scouts can be barred from Conn, charity list, judge says HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut did not violate the rights of the Boy Scouts when it removed the group from a list of charities that state employees contribute to via a payroll deduction plan, a U.S. District Court judge ruled July 22. The Connecticut State Employee Campaign Committee removed the Boy Scouts from its list in 2000 after the state's Commission on Human Rights & Opportunities found that including the Boy Scouts on the list violated the state's anti-discrimination laws. The Irving, Texas-based Boy Scouts, which has a right to ban gay leaders based on a U.S. Supreme Court ruling, and one Connecticut scouting council filed a federal discrimination lawsuit against the state, arguing that exclusion from the list was a First Amendment violation. State Comptroller Nancy Wyman, a named defendant in the lawsuit, lauded the decision. "It just basically states that the state of Connecticut does not, and cannot by law, do business with organizations that discriminate," Wyman said. The Boy Scouts and the group's attorney in Connecticut could not be reached by press time. In San Francisco, judges there have become the first in the state to cut ties with the Boy Scouts over its anti-gay policies, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. San Francisco Superior Court judges and commissioners adopted a policy July 11 saying they would not take part in any organization that "discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation." Connecticut State Comptroller Nancy Wyman, a defendant in a federal lawsuit filed by the Boy Scouts, lauded a ruling that said the state can boot the organization from its charity list (Photo by Steve Miller/AP) Conn, appeals court says it can't dissolve civil union HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A gay couple's attempt to have their civil union dissolved was rejected by a Connecticut appeals court last week in what is one of the first such test of the law outside Vermont. Glen Rosengarten and Peter Downes were married in Vermont in 2000, six months after that state enacted the first law in the nation allowing gay couples to enter into a union with some of the same rights as marriage. The Connecticut appeals court ruled that it cannot dissolve their union because Connecticut law does not recognize such relationships. "This is not a test case," said Gary Cohen, Rosengarten's attorney. "These are two very private people who want to have this resolved with dignity and discretion." Cohen said he would encourage Rosengarten to appeal to the Connecticut Supreme Court. Lower court judges had ruled that they did not have jurisdiction. Lesbian construction worker files bias lawsuit in III. CHICAGO — A woman who worked on the city's Deep Tunnel project Tiled a civil suit last week against a construction company and her former supervisor, alleging sex discrimination, sexual harassment, assault and battery, and hate crime, according to the Chicago Tribune. Djuna R. Diabor filed suit in U.S. District Court against Kenny- Kiewit-Shea Joint Venture and Robert Dodds, a construction supervisor, said her lawyer, William Ryan. "The construction industry has an obligation to protect employees from this kind of harassment," Ryan said. A Kenny-Kiewit-Shea spokesperson said he had not seen the lawsuit. Several times Daibor's supervisor tried to pull her hands toward his crotch, kissed her, forced his hands inside her clothing and, on one occasion, tried to rape her, the lawsuit alleges, after she told him she is a lesbian. AIDS ride organizers in III. dump Pallotta CHICAGO (AP) — In seven years, the Heartland AIDS Ride raised more than $15 million for AIDS-related causes. But shrinking profits and an overall lack of participation have prompted organizers to announce the event has run its last race. The agency is also breaking with Los Angeles-based Pallotta Teamworks, the event's creator and promoter. Pallotta has faced strong criticism recently over its poor returns on AIDS vaccine rides, which the company disbanded last month after low returns for a European event. Last year the Heartland event raised $5.7 million, but the charities only saw about 35.3 percent of that, officials said. "We have an obligation to our clients, our donors and even our states' attorneys general to have a solid return on every fund- raising dollar we spend," said Courtney Reid, president of AIDS Cycle, one of three participating agencies. A scaled down version of the event is planned for next year. 'No' not final answer to HIV-positive 'Sesame Street' character in U.S. PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — PBS won't flatly rule out the addition of an HIV- positive character to "Sesame Street," PBS President Pat Mitchell said July 26. Queried earlier this month by federal lawmakers about an HIV-positive Muppet joining South Africa's "Sesame Street," Mitchell told them no such character was planned for the show's U.S. version. But if the AIDS virus became a more serious problem for U.S. children, "Sesame Street" would be as responsive as it has been to other topics. Mitchell said. The new Muppet character will join South Africa's "Takalani Sesame" in September to help educate children about AIDS at the urging of the South African government.
