Brenner v. Scott

Brenner v. Scott is a federal lawsuit filed Feb. 28, 2104, in U.S. District Court in Tallahassee, challenging Florida's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. The plaintiffs, Jim Brenner and Chuck Jones, are a same-sex couple who married in Canada in 2009, seeking to have their marriage recognized in the state of Florida. On March 18, 2014, Steve Schlariet and Ozzie Russ, an unmarried same-sex couple from Chipley, Fla., joined the suit, and the challenge was expanded to include unmarried, same-sex couples seeking the freedom to marry.

A second federal challenge Grimsley v. Scott, filed March 12, 2014, was ordered consolidated by consent with Brenner v. Scott.
