Tempest in a Teapot or the Big Bang?: Considering the Surprising Consequences of the Supreme Court's Same-Sex Marriage Cases
Presenter: Nathan Lennon, J.D. 2013



Lecture Description
Most of us are aware of the United States Supreme Court's recent decisions in the area of same-sex marriage. Still, many people do not understand consequences of these cases. California's refusal to defend Proposition 8 in court leaves open two tantalizing questions, which could possibly mean a return to the Supreme Court: Will the high court accept a case similar to Proposition 8 within the next year or two? Will a state's refusal to defend a law in court allow governors and attorney generals to begin nullifying state laws around the country? Nathan Lennon will consider the legal issues raised by these questions.
