Chilean Judge Karen Atala lost custody of her three young daughters after a court held that, by living as a lesbian, Atala had put her own interests before those of her children. Working pro bono, Morrison & Foerster took on the case, which culminated in an Inter-American Court ruling that Chile violated Atala's rights to equality and privacy.
