Case: Florida Anti-Gay Ballot Initiative

STATUS: Loss, Florida

NCLR, the ACLU, and Equality Florida challenged a proposed anti-gay voter initiative in the Florida Supreme Court. The measure, if passed, would block recognition of marriage and jeopardize the current domestic partner protections. Unfortunately, in March 2006, the Florida Supreme Court rejected this argument and approved the initiative for placement on the ballot.
