BREAKING: Basic Rights Oregon Files Motion to Intervene

This JUST in. Basic Rights Oregon, in cooperation with their counsel, has filed a motion to intervene in Lemons v. Bradbury. If granted by Judge Mosman, this would give Basic Rights Oregon standing in the case, allow BRO to work with the state to defend the law and ensure that the interests of Oregon families are represented fairly before the court.

Details are still coming in, but here is what we know so far aside from the above.

The interveners in the case would include:

  • Basic Rights Oregon
  • Jeana Frazzini, plaintiff in Parman v. State of Oregon et al, in addition to being the new Executive Director of Basic Rights Oregon
  • Erin Sexton Taylor, a woman who is in a committed partnership and is expecting her first child in May
  • Sally Sparks, also in a committed long-term relationship and is expecting second child in February

    Judge Mosman has two weeks to make the decision as to whether or not he will allow this motion. Opponents will have a chance to way in on the motion to intervene.

    More details to come as well as an interview with one of the expecting mothers.
