Brenner v. Scott: Same-Sex Marriage Ban Declared Unconstitutional

Certain cases define moments in history and, for those lawyers fortunate enough to litigate such cases, the receipt of an order granting relief often feels like Christmas in summer. Therefore, it is with great pride and more than a little relief, that the members of this firm received Judge Hinkle's Order declaring Florida's same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional. The judge's entire order has been printed on this site. No additional words are necessary, except a deeply felt "thank you" to our Plaintiffs: James D. Brenner, Charles D. Jones, Stephen Schlariet, and Ozzie Russ.

These brave men were willing to put themselves on the line to ensure others would be guaranteed the fundamental right to marry. The word "hero" is often overused. In this case, it cannot begin to describe the courageouness of these men in bringing this successful challenge. The members of this firm are honored that these men asked us to serve as their counsel in this historic case.
