ABSTRACT
The article examines the majority opinion of the Supreme Court of Rhode Island in the Chambers v. Ormiston case. An overview of the case involving same-sex couple Margaret Chambers and Cassandra Ormiston is provided. A discussion of the definition and statutory interpretation of the case is presented. Also cited are two aspects illustrating that Rhode Island is not immune from nationwide prejudices of gays and lesbians, including the escalation of police harassment of gays and lesbians during the postwar period.
