Case Summary

On October 17, 2014, a Christian couple who are ordained ministers and run a wedding chapel in Idaho filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and state law against the City of Coeur d'Alene. The plaintiffs, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom, asked the court to prohibit the city from enforcing the anti-discrimination ordinance that prohibits the plaintiffs from refusing to marry same-sex couples.

On October 17, 2014, a Christian couple who are ordained ministers and run a wedding chapel in Idaho filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and state law against the City of Coeur d'Alene. The plaintiffs, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom, asked the court to prohibit the city from enforcing the anti-discrimination ordinance that prohibits the plaintiffs from refusing to marry same-sex couples. The plaintiffs also sought a declaratory judgment that this ordinance violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution and damages. Specifically, the plaintiffs claim that, because they are ordained ministers who believe that marriage is a union between a man and a woman, an ordinance that prohibits them from refusing to marry same-sex couples violates their religious freedom. Furthermore, because each day that the couple refuses to perform a single same-sex wedding ceremony counts as a new charge against them, they could be sentenced to thirty years in jail and $30,000 in fines for refusing to marry one couple for a month.

On three subsequent occasions, the parties stipulated to a brief stay of proceedings, and indicated to the court that a settlement of the action was a distinct possibility. The action did not settle and, on February 23, 2015, the defendant moved to dismiss the claim.

On March 16, 2015, plaintiffs filed an amended complaint. They allege a violation of (1) their First Amendment right to freedom of speech, including compelled speech, viewpoint discrimination, unconstitutional conditions, and unbridled discretion; (2) their First Amendment right to free exercise of religion; (3) their rights under the Idaho Free Exercise of Religion Protected Act (FERPA); (4) their Fourteenth Amendment right to equal protection; and (5) Fourteenth Amendment right to due process. Plaintiffs sought compensatory and nominal damages, temporary restraining order and/or preliminary injunction, a declaratory judgment, and attorneys’ fees.

On March 31, 2015, Judge Ronald E. Bush denied plaintiffs’ motion for temporary restraining order and/or preliminary injunction as moot, as the passage of time since the original filing, the multiple stays, and the amended complaint presented a different context than the one which prompted the motion originally. This meant that the defendant’s motion to dismiss was also denied as moot.

On March 25, 2016, the court filed a memorandum opinion and (1) found that the plaintiffs had standing to bring a claim for economic injuries for the single day of October 15, 2014 when they closed their business location; (2) granted the defendant’s motion to dismiss the first amended complaint as the plaintiffs did not have standing to bring a claim for economic injuries for other periods; and (3) that the plaintiffs did not have standing to bring a pre-enforcement challenge to the anti-discrimination ordinance. 172 F.Supp.3d 1118.

On April 12, 2016, the defendant served an offer of judgment on plaintiffs. On April 29, 2016, plaintiffs accepted the offer and notified the court accordingly. The court subsequently awarded plaintiffs $1000.01, plus reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs prior to the date of the offer of judgment. $1000.01 was paid to the plaintiffs on May 3, 2016, and filed as satisfaction of judgment on May 24, but there was no mention of reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
