About the Proposition 8 case:

 

Gibson Dunn represents the plaintiffs in Perry v. Brown, the successful federal challenge to California's denial of marriage to gay and lesbian individuals. After a three-week trial in San Francisco last year, the court held that California's law is unconstitutional under both the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses.  Early this year, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld the district court's decision finding Proposition 8 unconstitutional.
