Case Summary

On January 6, 2014, when several same-sex couples who were residents of Arizona filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against the state of Arizona. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, asked the court to declare that all Arizona laws banning same-sex marriages are unconstitutional, to compel the defendants to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, to award the plaintiffs nominal damages as well as the costs of suit and a…

On January 6, 2014, when several same-sex couples who were residents of Arizona filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against the state of Arizona. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, asked the court to declare that all Arizona laws banning same-sex marriages are unconstitutional, to compel the defendants to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, to award the plaintiffs nominal damages as well as the costs of suit and attorneys' fees.

In 1996, the state of Arizona banned same-sex marriage, and in 2008 this ban was added to the state constitution in The Marriage Protection Amendment. The plaintiffs claimed that Arizona's laws prohibiting the recognition of same-sex marriages targeted homosexuals for disfavored treatment and interfered with the flow of the plaintiffs' spousal benefits and their ability to build their families. They further allege that these laws violated their rights under the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the United States Constitution.

On July 29, 2014, the District court (Judge John W. Sedwick) granted the defendants' motion to dismiss the plaintiffs' claim for nominal damages, ruling that the Eleventh Amendment bars such claims from being brought against state officials.

On October 16, 2014, the District Court (Judge Sedwick) granted the plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment. The court ruled that Arizona's laws banning same sex marriage are unconstitutional in light of the Ninth Circuit's decision in Latta v. Otter, and entered a permanent injunction barring their enforcement.

The defendants filed an appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on November 17, 2014. The parties stipulated that the appellate proceedings will be stayed until the Supreme Court's decision in the DeBoer case.

The DeBoer case was decided by the outcome of Obergefell v. Hodges. On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court held that the right to marry is fundamental, and it demeans gay and lesbian couples to deprive them of access to marriage. The 14th Amendment therefore does not allow states to ban same-sex marriage. Kennedy was joined without further writing by Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Kagan, and Sotomayor. Each of the four dissenters--Chief Justice Roberts, and Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito--wrote a dissent.

Following the decision in the Supreme Court, the parties jointly stipulated for an entry of judgement for the plaintiff's attorneys' fees and other litigation expenses. On September 29, 2015, the court entered a judgement of $200,000 for the plaintiffs.

JUDGE SEDWICK TEXT ORDER re: 47 MOTION for Summary Judgment AND 58 MOTION for Summary Judgment. The court has read the decision of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Latta, et al. v. Otter, el al., Ninth Circuit Case No. 14-35420 filed October 7, 2014. It appears that the Latta decision controls the outcome of the cross-motions for summary judgment at dockets 47 and 58 in this case. Latta appears to require that the motion at docket 47 be granted, and the motion at docket 58 be denied. The court invites the parties each to submit a supplemental brief discussing how the Latta decision applies to the motions at dockets 47 and 58. The supplemental briefs should be filed not more than 7 days from the date of this order. This is a TEXT ENTRY ONLY. There is no PDF document associated with this entry. (JWS) (Entered: 10/09/2014)

Finally, this court declines to stay the effect of this order. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED denying as moot 58 Defendants' Cross-Motion for Summary Judgment.
