Yesterday, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin (D) nominated Beth Robinson to be the next justice of the Vermont Supreme Court. In 1999, Robinson represented three same-sex couples in the state supreme court case that led to gay couples being granted the right to enter into civil unions. She went on to lead a Vermont marriage equality group before becoming Shumlin’s general counsel.
