Judge Refuses To Delay Transfer Of Former Lesbian Couple's Daughter

A judge in Vermont is refusing to delay transfer of custody of a 7-year-old girl who has been at the center of a long-running dispute between a former lesbian couple.

Lisa Miller and Janet Jenkins were joined in a civil union in Vermont in 2000. Miller gave birth to a daughter, Isabella, through artificial insemination two years later.

But in 2003, the couple broke up. Miller moved to Virginia, renounced homosexuality and became an evangelical Christian. Supreme Courts in Virginia and Vermont ruled in favor of Jenkins in the custody dispute. The latest court order calls for Miller to turn over Isabella to Jenkins on Friday. The order says Miller has ''disappeared'' with Isabella.

An attorney for Jenkins says she hopes Miller will comply with the order.
