Florida – Recognition of Same-Sex Widow Prior to US Supreme Court Case Does Not Require Judicial Intervention

According to this article, a Federal Judge just ruled that the State of Florida improperly required widows and widowers in same-sex marriages to petition the Court for recognition on the death certificate if their spouse died prior to the date of the US Supreme Court decision declaring state bans on same-sex marriage unconstitutional.  

While this does not directly relate to same-sex adoption, it is significant in showing some challenges that the State of Florida continues to seek to place on same-sex couples.
