David Boies and Ted Olson, lead attorneys in the American Foundation for Equal Rights' federal challenge to Proposition 8, accepted the American Bar Association Medal today. It is the organization's highest honor.

AFER writes:

In accepting the honor, David Boies reflected on his role in Perry v Schwarzenegger and noted, “What we’ve been able to accomplish is based on the contributions of so many other people who made those contributions under much more difficult circumstances” and accepted the award on behalf of them.

AFER, Boies and Olson will be back in court on September 6 for oral arguments in front of the California Supreme Court on the question of whether under California law official proponents of a ballot initiative have an interest in defending the initiative when it is challenged in court.  The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit deemed the question essential to its determination as to whether the official proponents of Proposition 8 have standing to appeal Judge Vaughn R. Walker’s ruling from last summer.

Watch Boies and Olson accept the award, AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. Bully for them, and congratulations. Olson and Boies are taking the marriage equality movement to a higher level, regardless of how many lily-livered Lefties may be kicking and screaming about it.
