Wilson v. Ake was a federal lawsuit brought about in the state of Florida, by two Florida women who had been married in the state of Massachusetts the previous summer.

The women sought to have the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which allows states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages from other states, ruled unconstitutional. On January 19, 2005, U.S. District Court Judge James S. Moody Jr. dismissed the suit, upholding the DOMA.
