  • Same-sex marriage case in court: Attorney Mary Bonauto

    The Detroit News - 04/24/2015

    Northeastern University law school professor Mary O’Connell taught Bonauto family law and recalls her former student as a dedicated person who developed a commitment to fighting discrimination of gays and lesbians early on.

    “It’s been her conviction for decades and decades,” O’Connell said. “She was offended by this discrimination by a certain group of people.

    “She always felt gays and lesbians were misunderstood and mistreated.”

    Bonauto is soft-spoken, smart and “doesn’t believe in beating down an opponent but likes to win.” She is an “incredibly solid” lawyer who does her homework, O’Connell said.

    “I’m not surprised she got this case,” she said.
