ABSTRACT
This section offers news briefs on federal civil litigations in the U.S. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that the Florida State Bar did not violate the constitutional rights of its members who disapproved of gay adoptions because of the presence of its Family Law Section. The University of Florida amended its non-discrimination policy after a Christian fraternity filed a suit for not being recognized as a registered organization. The city of Pacific Grove in California won a summary judgment in a discrimination suit filed by a gay police officer.
