Challenging Proposition 8

Star litigators Ted Olson, partner in Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, and David Boies, Chairman of Boies, Schiller & Flexner, are best known for opposing each other in the case Bush v. Gore. But last year they teamed up to challenge California’s Proposition 8 in court. The trial, which rested in January, is a high-profile challenge to state constitution gay marriage bans, and whatever the outcome in this round, the case is widely expect to go all the way to the Supreme Court.
