Prof Rosky Testifies Before Utah House Panel on Gay-Rights Bill

Clifford Rosky, an associate professor of law at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, testified before the House Judiciary Committee on February 18 regarding House Bill 160, the Adult Joint Support Declaration Act, which would allow unmarried adults who live together and depend on each other financially to inherit from each other and make medical decisions on each other’s behalf, even if they do not make a will or a health care directive.

The measure was defeated in the House Judiciary Committee on a 9-4 vote along party lines, with all Republicans opposing the measure and all Democrats offering support.
