Nebraska Court Dismisses Same-Sex Divorce Appeal From Couple Married In Iowa

  • Photo

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal of a same-sex couple seeking a divorce in Nebraska.

The decision came in the case of Bonnie Nichols, a Raymond woman who married her longtime partner, Margie, in 2009 in Iowa. Bonnie Nichols filed for divorce last year, but a Lancaster County judge ruled that the court couldn’t grant it without recognizing the marriage.

Same-sex marriages are allowed in Iowa, but Nebraska’s constitution doesn’t recognize them.

The judge issued an order giving Bonnie Nichols 15 days to file an amended complaint, but said the case would be dismissed without the ability to refile if she didn’t.

Nichols instead appealed. On Friday, the high court said that because she appealed from a conditional order and not a final judgment, it lacks jurisdiction in the case.
