"Our collective journey tells of a crucial and historical civil rights movement that brings us closer to the ideals on which our country was founded," Boies, 71, said in a statement issued by Viking.

Olson, 72, said he and Boies between them have "nearly 100 years in the law."

"We have never handled a more important, dramatic and emotionally compelling challenge," he said in a statement.
