Attorneys Rally Around High Court’s Gay Marriage Decision

Overview


Lisa Linsky declared that the legalization of same-sex marriage “rights many of the past wrongs that society has meted out against LGBT Americans …. While the marriage decision will not be a panacea, it is a giant step forward in changing hearts and minds and moving our country toward full equality for all.” Nicole Pearl cautioned that “while the decision affords a basic level of dignity to same-sex relationships everywhere, it stops short of treating LGBT individuals as a suspect class … The impact that it will have on the day-to-day lives of LGBT couples will depend both on their state of residency and their current marital status.”
