Appeals court
rules against Oklahoma same-sex adoption ban

A federal appeals court has decided a law banning state recognition of out-of-state adoptions by gay Oklahoma couples is unconstitutional, reports Oklahoma City TV news KOCO 5.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals reaffirmed an earlier ruling by an federal judge in Okalahoma that said the 2004 law was outdated and in violation of the Constitution.

According to the news station, the appeals court said the law stands in direct opposition to the Full Faith and Credit Clause, which requires states to give "full faith and credit" to the judicial proceedings of every other state. (The Advocate)
