Rachel Maddow Interviews Marriage Equality Attorneys David Boies & Ted Olson

Rachel Maddow NYU interview on Marriage equality

This week  at NYU’s law school Rachel Maddow engaged attorneys David Boies and Ted Olson in an informed discussion concerning their current challenge to Proposition 8, California’s same-sex marriage ban. The two dedicated marriage equality activists had argued on opposite sides of the Bush v Gore Supreme Court decision after the divisive 2000 presidential election; but the former political opponents now both passionately agree that discrimination against any group is both illegal and unconstitutional.

The lengthy interview examines the evolution of seminal court decisions that have shaped civil rights in the United States, and also goes on to analyze which arguments will be most effective when the upcoming marriage equality civil rights case is finally heard before the justices. The video of the compelling event is nearly an hour, and is well worth watching.
