David Boies and Ted Olson Make the Case for Marriage Equality
Friday, August 29, 2014
We are re-airing this interview which originally aired on June 25, 2014.
Attorneys David Boies and Ted Olson tell the inside story of the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling on California’s Proposition 8. Boies and Olson argued against each other in the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore in 2000, but they joined forces after that battle to forge the unique legal argument that would pave the way for marriage equality. Their book Redeeming the Dream: The Case for Marriage Equality tells the story of the five-year struggle to win the right for gays to marry, from Proposition 8’s adoption by California voters in 2008 to its defeat before the highest court in the land in Hollingsworth v. Perry in 2013.
