Robicheaux v. George

Robicheaux v. George (prev. Robicheaux v. Caldwell), is a federal court challenge to Louisiana's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, and recognition of lawfully performed out-of-state same-sex marriages, filed Jan. 13, 2014, in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, on behalf of two same-sex couples married in Iowa who were seeking to have their marriages recognized by the state of Louisiana.

The case was originally filed July 16, 2013, but was was dismissed because plaintiffs had only named Attorney General James Caldwell as a defendant and he hadn't actually denied them the recognition of their marriage. The couples refiled on Jan. 13, 2014, naming State Registrar Devin George as defendant.
