Strawser v. Strange
Meredith Miller and Anna Lisa Carmichael
Named Plaintiffs Meredith Miller and Anna Lisa Carmichael have been in a committed relationship for almost 9 years and reside in Mobile County, Alabama. The couple hope to have children, but are concerned that if they are not married, their children will be exposed to the damaging message that their family is not as worthy of dignity and respect as other families in Alabama and that their children will be denied important legal protections that come with marriage. On February 9, 2015, Plaintiffs Miller and Carmichael appeared at Defendant Davis’s office in Mobile, Alabama, to apply for a marriage license, but were unable to obtain a license because Defendant Davis elected to cease issuance of marriage licenses in Mobile County until this Court clarified his legal obligations. As a result of this Court’s further order of February 12, 2015, granting a preliminary injunction in this action, Plaintiffs Miller and Carmichael married in Alabama pursuant to a marriage license issued by Defendant Davis.
