Bill Sheppard and Samuel Jacobson Challenge Florida Laws Refusing to Recognize Same-sex Marriages

Our firm was recently in the news: 

Attorneys Bill Sheppard and Samuel Jacobson have filed the challenge on behalf of a same-sex couple who got married in Canada and live in Tallahassee. The lawsuit filed late Friday in the Northern District of Florida names Gov. Rick Scott and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi as defendants and is one of several similar recent suits that have successfully challenged such laws nationwide.
