HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Madison County judge has dismissed a same-sex couple's divorce filing.

Judge Karen Hall's order read, "This cause of action is hereby dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted pursuant to the laws of this State."

The same-sex couple, married in another state, filed for divorce in Madison County. Alabama does not recognize same-sex marriages from any state.

According to the court filing, the women married in Iowa in 2012, then moved to Alabama.
