The Supreme Court on Monday declined to review a challenge to Florida’s law against gay adoption, passing up a chance to elaborate on its landmark 2003 gay rights case, Lawrence v. Texas.

Without comment, the Court in Lofton v. Secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families let stand a 2004 decision by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld the Florida gay-adoption ban, the only law of its kind nationwide. The circuit ruling also criticized the reasoning of Lawrence, which struck down state sodomy laws.
