Gene R. Libby and other experts in Maine Family Law persuade Law Court

Gene R. Libby was one of twenty “Concerned Maine Attorneys” who recently provided support as amici curiae to overturn a decision of the District Court in a parentage action involving surrogate parents.  The court had ruled that it lacked statutory authority to declare the genetic mother to be the legal mother of a baby born to a surrogate.  Gene and the other amici supported the parties’ appeal, and the Law Court vacated the District Court’s decision.
