Miami judge rules against Florida gay adoption banBy CURT ANDERSON – 4 hours ago
MIAMI (AP) — A judge on Tuesday overturned a strict Florida law that blocks gay people from adopting children, declaring there was no legal or scientific reason for sexual orientation alone to prohibit anyone from adopting.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Cindy Lederman said the 31-year-old law violates equal protection rights for the children and their prospective gay parents, rejecting the state's arguments that there is "a supposed dark cloud hovering over homes of homosexuals and their children."
We've been through this in Florida before. The State will appeal and win, as they have before. It's a nice symbolic gesture, but I'm listening to local TV coverage right now, that also predicts it'll be overturned in the Supreme Court.
