Armonk Lawyer Argues For Gay Marriage In Supreme Court

ARMONK, N.Y. – As the U.S. Supreme Court handles its first two cases regarding same-sex marriage this week, Armonk lawyer David Boies finds himself in the midst of history, according to a News 12 Westchester report .

In the first Supreme Court hearing of gay rights in more than 10 years, Boies is one of the lead attorneys arguing that same-sex couples have the constitutional right to marriage, and is using the controversy of interracial marriage in the 1960s as a comparison.

The nation has been polarized this week with California’s Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage under the spotlight.

The cases will pick up on Wednesday, as the Supreme Court will hear arguments over the Federal Defense of Marriage Act. Many suspect the court is unlikely to reach a decision before June.
