It is once again time for what has come to be known as “SCOTUS Watch” – as we await the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruling on four pending marriage equality cases. While we do not yet know when their ruling will be announced, we do know it will happen before the end of the month of June. And while we certainly don’t know what that ruling will be, we do know that it will have a direct impact on the lives of same-sex couples in our nation.
To help us understand the whys, the wherefores and the what nexts of this chapter of the journey toward marriage equality across the country, we are delighted to welcome back our brilliant friend, attorney David Codell to the Rector’s Forum on Sunday, June 28.
In 2014, Mr. Codell became Constitutional Litigation Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), litigating cases seeking marriage equality for same-sex couples in Utah, Alabama, Florida, Idaho, and Tennessee. The Tennessee case that Mr. Codell is litigating with NCLR — Tanco v. Haslam — is one of the pending SCOTUS cases. And so there is no one better prepared to bring us up to date on things marriage equality.
We’re not sure at this point whether he’ll be telling us what just happened or what might happen – but either way no one is better prepared to bring us up to date on all things marriage equality. So mark your calendars now and join us — Sunday, June 28th at 10:15 a.m. in the Forum. If you can’t be here in person, join via live stream. For more information call 626.796.1172.
