Determined whether denying same-sex couples the right to marry violated the Oregon Constitution.
The Plaintiffs—nine same-sex couples and two advocacy organizations—argued that marriage was a "privilege" under the Oregon Constitution the Constitution prohibited using sexual orientation or gender as a basis to deny such a privilege. The Oregon Supreme Court declined to rule on whether the Oregon constitution requires the state to afford same-sex couples the same legal protections as opposite-sex couples who marry.
