Attorney David Boies, Chairman of Boies, Schiller & Flexner.
Boies, along with co-lead counsel, brought a landmark civil rights case to trial in 2010 challenging California’s Proposition 8. Judges at both the federal district and appellate levels have concluded that Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution. The case will be argued before United States Supreme Court on March 26th with a ruling expected in June.

Attorney Doug Nave, Partner with Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.
Nave has argued numerous cases in Presbyterian Church courts for LGBT equality.  Mr. Nave’s speech, “Blest be the Ties?” will focus on marriage equality in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Discussion led by Rev. Dr. Jon Walton and Barbara Wheeler.
