Attorneys David Boies and Ted Olson will speak about the movement to recognize the right to marry someone of the same sex and the arguments for Due Process and Equal Protection under the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution to vindicate that right. They will discuss their successful litigation to overturn California’s Proposition 8, which had restricted marriage to a man and a woman. Boies and Olson will also speak about the challenge to Virginia’s same-sex marriage prohibition and pending Supreme Court cases related to marriage equality.
