Client Story


Share this page
Summary
In clear violation of California’s marriage laws, San Francisco’s mayor and the director of the county clerk’s office issued around 4,000 marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Alliance Defending Freedom and its allies came to marriage’s defense in California by filing a lawsuit on behalf of the entity that had been established to codify California’s longstanding practice of man-woman marriage, against San Francisco.
