  • Supreme Court hears same-sex marriage arguments

    The New York Times - 04/28/2015

    Mary L. Bonauto, a prominent gay rights advocate who was instrumental in establishing a right to same-sex marriage in Massachusetts, argued first, for 30 minutes.

    Ms. Bonauto is making her debut at the Supreme Court. A longtime champion of gay rights, she has been one of the rallying figures in the movement. She argued in 2003 on behalf of Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, known as GLAD, in Goodridge v. Department of Public Health, the case in which Massachusetts’s highest court decided that same-sex couples could legally marry in the state.

    She is arguing that states should be required to allow same-sex couples to marry. She will have approximately 30 minutes to make her case.

    Ms. Bonauto attended Hamilton College as an undergraduate and Northeastern University School of Law.
