Lawsuit Filed By Six Couples to Bring Marriage Equality to Florida
On Tuesday, January 21, 2014, a lawsuit was filed on behalf of six same-sex couples challenging the ban on marriage equality in Florida.
The South Florida couples suing for the right to marry are Catherina Pareto and Karla Arguello; Dr. Juan Carlos Rodriguez and David Price; Vanessa and Melanie Alenier; Todd and Jeff Delmay; Summer Greene and Pamela Faerber; and Don Price Johnston and Jorge Isaias Diaz. Equality Florida Institute is also a plaintiff.
The Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus stands with these six couples, Equality Florida, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights. We strongly applaud the commitment and courage of these six brave couples for their leadership in the struggle for marriage equality in Florida.
