Mooneyham v. Ozark Fire Protection District
What's at Stake
The American Civil Liberties Union and ACLU of Missouri have filed a lawsuit on behalf of Andrea “Andi” Mooneyham against the Ozark Fire Protection District.
On Oct. 8, 2014 the ACLU sent Todd A. Johnson of the Ozark Fire District a letter informing him that the district is required to offer spousal benefits to its married employees, regardless of their sexual orientation. Despite state and federal court rulings striking down the 2004 Missouri Constitutional amendment that bans marriage between same-sex couples, the Ozark Fire District refuses to offer equal benefits to same-sex spouses.
