David Boies is a highly distinguished American trial lawyer who has litigated some of the highest profile cases in recent history. His book, Redeeming the Dream: The Case for Marriage Equality (Penguin), offers a dramatic and up-close account of his arguments, and ultimate triumph, in the landmark Supreme Court case which struck down Proposition 8, reinstating the freedom to marry for gays and lesbians in California.
Special FREE Screenings of “The Case Against 8” The Kentucky Author Forum held two special screenings of this one-hour documentary. The film provides a behind-the-scenes look inside the historic case to overturn California’s ban on same-sex marriage. The high-profile trial first made headlines with the unlikely pairing of Ted Olson and David Boies, political foes who last faced off as opposing attorneys in Bush v. Gore
David Boies was interviewed by Jeffrey Toobin, prominent legal journalist, staff writer for The New Yorker, senior analyst for CNN, and author of The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court.
