Morning Sweep

A Washington State judge has rejected a lawsuit seeking to block Referendum 71 -- the measure to block domestic partnership benefits for same-sex couples -- from the Nov. ballot. An appeal is considered likely.

As part of the state's new, finally-approved budget, Arizona is taking away domestic partnership benefits for the partners of state employees, leaving nearly 800 people without insurance coverage.

But chin up...despite news like this, a recent poll found that LGBT people were more optimistic about the direction the country was taking than their straight counterparts.

CNN covers the growing acceptance of the gay Latino community.
