In June 2017, the Louisiana Legislature (House vote 54-42 and Senate vote 25-13) passed a bill called HB27, to repeal the words "opposite-sex" within the domestic violence statutes.
The bill HB27 was signed into law by the Governor of Louisiana John Bel Edwards and goes into full effect on August 1, 2017.
The law was rendered unenforceable in 2003 by the U. In April 2014, a bill to repeal the statute failed in the Louisiana House of Representatives on a 66–27 vote after lobbying in opposition by the Louisiana Family Forum. On appeal to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, the case remained unresolved at the time of the U. Supreme Court decision in Obergefell on June 26, 2015.
Following the Supreme Courts ruling, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals remanded the case back to the District Court, where Judge Feldman reversed his order ruling in favor of the Robicheaux plaintiffs.
