Episode Update: Martin Gill and Family
In The States: Florida (00:16:40)
On September 22, 2010, The Third District Court of Appeals in Florida upheld a lower court's ruling in favor of Martin Gill, his partner and his two foster sons, agreeing that the state law banning adoption by gay people is unconstitutional.
The appellate ruling applies to the Gill family alone and does not overturn Florida's ban on gay adoption. The state has 30 days to decide whether to appeal to the State Supreme Court, where a ruling would constitute a statewide determination on the law.
