Robicheaux v. George is a 2014 federal court case requesting that the Louisiana marriage amendment (Section 15) and statutory marriage ban (LCC 3520) be declared unconstitutional and the state of Louisiana give full faith and credit to all out-of-state marriage certificates.
After Robicheaux v. Caldwell was dismissed, and motions for reconsideration and for leave to amend were denied, the plaintiffs in that case filed a new suit naming state officials in the Department of Health and Hospitals and the Department of Revenue.
Combined with the ruling of the Supreme Court, this case eventually secured marriage equality across the state of Louisiana.
