Doe v. Jindal
United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana
851 F. Supp. 2d 995 (2012)
Nine individuals (plaintiffs) were convicted of violating Louisiana’s Crime Against Nature by Solicitation (CANS) statute after engaging in oral sex for compensation. As part of their conviction, the individuals were mandated to register as sex offenders. The individuals filed a 42 U.S.C. § 1983 claim against government officials including Governor Bobby Jindal (defendants), alleging that the statute violated their right to equal protection under the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The individuals argued that their right to equal protection was violated because those who were convicted of the same behavior under the prostitution statute were not mandated to register as sex offenders. Therefore, the individuals argued that the statute created two classifications of similarly situated individuals who were treated differently and that there was no rational basis for the different treatment.
