David Boies and Theodore B. Olson. Redeeming the dream: the case for marriage equality. Viking, 2014.

KF228.H645B65 2014

 

In December of 2000, lawyers Boies and Olsen faced each other as adversaries in the U.S. Supreme Court case of Bush v. Gore. Nearly thirteen years later, they would argue before the Court again—this time on the same side—in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry, which reinstated same-sex marriage in California. This book tells the story of their unlikely partnership, and lays out their legal arguments in favor of same-sex marriage rights.
