Forum for Equality Louisiana v. Barfield

Forum for Equality Louisiana v. Barfield is a federal court challenge to Louisiana’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, filed Feb. 12, 2014, in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana by the Forum for Equality Louisiana and four married same-sex couples challenging the state’s constitutional prohibition against recognizing same-sex marriages performed legally in other states. The lawsuit also challenges the state’s refusal to recognize both members of a same-sex union as parents of a child born to them or adopted.
