Castle v. State

This court case is completed

The ACLU filed a lawsuit in 2004 against the state of Washington, challenging the denial of marriage rights to same-sex couples. The suit was filed in Thurston County Superior Court on behalf of 11 couples from across the state who wish to marry in Washington or to have their marriage recognized under Washington law.

The case has been combined for purposes of the hearing with a lawsuit filed by eight same-sex couples who sued King County for refusing to give them marriage licenses (Andersen v. King County).
