The Florida Bar is coming out in a big way -- for gay adoption. The Bar's board of governors voted unanimously to file an amicus brief supporting a Miami-Dade judge's ruling that declared unconstitutional a state ban on gay adoptions. About five years ago, the Bar's family section requested permission to approach the state Legislature in opposition to the ban, but the Bar's board of governors denied permission. "This is different ... Now we have a judicial decision that we're trying to defend," said one section member.
