Historic Day: Supreme Court Will Hear Marriage Equality Cases

We learned earlier this afternoon that the Supreme Court will take up two marriage equality-related cases in the coming months – hearing arguments on California’s Prop 8 ban on marriage equality, and the discriminatory federal Defense of Marriage Act.

HRC President Chad Griffin, a founding board member of the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), recruited the legal dream team of Theodore Olson and David Boies to successfully argue the Prop. 8 case. With today’s news, we will likely hear by June 2013 whether the Supreme Court recognizes the rights of same-sex couples to marry.

Below, Chad participates on a call with reporters from AFER’s Los Angeles office. Stay with HRC for the latest on today’s historic news.
