(Standing / Supreme Court Rules)
Alliance, who was an intervenor in a family law case decided by the Ontario Court of Appeal, wanted to appeal that court's decision.  The Court of Appeal had ruled that two lesbian partners could be considered mothers of a child born to one of them, with the result that the child has two mothers and a father.  In rejecting Alliance's application, the Supreme Court held that the rules do not permit a private applicant, with no personal interest, to revive litigation.
