Florida’s gay adoption ban loses again in court

A Florida appeals court has ruled the state’s ban on adoption by gays and lesbians is unconstitutional, upholding a lower court ruling that will now likely be appealed to the state’s supreme court.

“We affirm the judgment of adoption, which holds subsection 63.042(3), Florida Statutes, violates the equal protection provision found in article I, section 2, of the Florida Constitution,” the court said.

The case deals with the family of Martin Gill, a gay Florida man who is seeking to adopt two boys placed in his foster care years ago by the state.
