Adoption Petition

The couple whose lawsuit got Alabama’s gay marriage ban ruled unconstitutional is headed back to court after a probate judge again refused to grant their adoption petition. Cari Searcy and Kim McKeand filed the lawsuit Tuesday against Mobile County Probate Judge, Don Davis. Davis on Friday indicated that he would not process the adoption petition until the U.S. Supreme Court issues a ruling on gay marriage later this year. A lawyer for the couple says Davis has no legal justification to deny the request and Davis’s lawyer says the judge will follow direction from the court.
