The Lawyers in the Gay Marriage Case
Mike Rappaport

Orin Kerr mentions the lawyers on both sides of the gay marriage case -- for the constitutional right to gay marriage, Ted Olson (and David Boies), and against, Charles Cooper.  Upon reading Orin's post, I realized that I had worked for both of these lawyers -- for Cooper when I worked in the Office of Legal Council of the Justice Departments, and for Olson when I worked at Gibson, Dunn, and Crutcher in Washington, D.C. 

Both were very good lawyers and both were demanding bosses!  (But not nearly as tough as some of my other bosses.)    

Some people have been surprised by Ted's decision to bring the lawsuit, but it does not really surprise me.  (I would not necessarily have predicted it, but, having heard about it, I am by no means shocked.)  Ted was a very innovative attorney and he was more of a textualist than an originalist.

I like the topics of marriage, as I have seen are built and destroyed many, I've also seen how older adults rebuild it with pills such as Viagra, which I think is impressive, but in the end is one of the issues that all we love it, also I would like to receive updates of this post, as it is very good!

The report seems confusing to others. Some terms aren't that complimenting to the whole statement.

I know the lawyers on both sides of the gay marriage a little.
