Subject:        Voiding (Gay) Romeo and Juliet Law

"The court's directive today that the Kansas courts reconsider the Limon
case with Lawrence v. Texas in mind was tantamount to an instruction to
set aside the prison term imposed on Mr. LiMonday, and perhaps to take a
close look at what has been called the state's "Romeo and Juliet Law.""
