Event Details

David Boies, Chairman, Boies, Schiller, and Flexner LLP; Co-Author, Redeeming the Dream: The Case for Marriage Equality

Theodore B. Olson, Partner, Gibson, Dunn, and Crutcher, Co-Author, Redeeming the Dream: The Case for Marriage Equality

In conversation with California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom 

Introduction by Actor/Activist George Takei

Come hear the riveting inside story of the Supreme Court’s landmark rulings on The Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8. On June 26, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a pair of landmark decisions, reinstating the freedom to marry for same-sex couples in California. Boies and Olson – who argued against each other all the way to the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore – joined forces to forge the unique legal argument that would carry the day. Now they discuss the story of the five-year struggle to win the right for gay couples to marry, from Proposition 8’s adoption in 2008 to its defeat before the highest court in the land in Hollingsworth v. Perryin 2013. Kris Perry and Sandy Stier, plaintiffs represented by Mr. Boies and Mr. Olson in the Supreme Court case, will be in attendance
