Will New Jersey Workers' Comp Benefits Be Extended to Same Sex Couples

"Disparate treatment of committed same-sex couples, moreover, directly
disadvantages their children. We fail to see any legitimate
governmental purpose in disallowing the child of a deceased same-sex
parent survivor benefits under the Workers' Compensation Act or
Criminal Injuries Compensation Act when children of married parents
would be entitled to such benefits."
