McLaughlin v. Florida is a 1964 United States Supreme Court case that said that U.S. states cannot treat interracial sex differently from sex between people of the same race.[1] The law that was challenged and struck down in this case was a Florida law that banned interracial couples from living together but not couples of the same race.[1] This case, along with the 1967 case Loving v. Virginia, overturned the 1883 case Pace v. Alabama.[1]
