Israel high court petitioned to recognize foreign same-sex marriage

On November 1, 2005, a same-sex couple petitioned the Israeli High Court of Justice to force the country's Population Registry to recognize their same-sex marriage. The marriage was performed legally in Toronto, Canada in July 2005. The petitioners accused the Registry of "unlawful discrimination" for refusing to register them as married. The court later ruled in their favor.
