Kansas: Staff says legal problems are unlikely if Lawrence passes registry

Toni Ramirez Wheeler, director of legal services for the city of Lawrence, reports that passing a domestic partner registry should not cause legal problems for the city.
(I)t is unlikely that the City would face liability if a person included in the domestic partnership registry commits a fraudulent insurance act as defined in the Kansas statute cited above. An electronic search of case law nationwide disclosed no cases in which a municipality maintaining a domestic partnership registration was involved as a named party in litigation for a fraudulent insurance act.
This matches the information I received from the national ACLU.
