MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court won't take up an appeal of a ruling that upholds the state's domestic partner registry.
The registry was created in 2009 and gives same-sex partners many of the same legal rights as married couples.
Wisconsin Family Action challenged the law in 2010, saying it violated the state's ban on gay marriage.
Dane County Judge Daniel Moeser ruled against that lawsuit and Wisconsin Family Action then appealed. In July of 2012, the 4th District Court of Appeals sent the case to the state Supreme Court, which refused to certify the appeal.
The high court's order does not specify a reason for the refusal.
