Gay Adoption Case May Evoke Supreme Court's 'Lawrence' Decision
Tony Mauro
Legal Times

Gay rights returns to the Supreme Court's agenda Friday, at the justices' first private conference of the new year.

The Florida gay adoption case, Lofton v. Secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families, is one of dozens of cases the Court will discuss at its conference with an eye toward granting or denying review.

If the justices do grant review, the case will give the Court its first chance to comment on the scope of its 2003 Lawrence v. Texas ruling that announced due process and privacy rights for homosexuals.
