  • Newer law has been passed
  • Status is not correct "It would be more accurate to say that this judge's ruling constituted a precedent favoring interpreting the law (which, quote, prohibits sexual acts against nature) in a way that does not apply to homosexuals. So at the moment, the law is sometimes used against homosexuals, and sometimes is considered inapplicable and ignored."
