Today, BALIF filed its amicus brief in the Proposition 8 case currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. BALIF brought together nearly 60 organizations as amici, including minority bar associations in California, non-LGBT local bar associations throughout the country, and national and local non-profit organizations. Among the list of amici are various LGBT-bar associations nationwide, including from Florida, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, and Tennessee, non-LGBT bar associations, and organizations such as BASF, NAPABA, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, TLC, and the Marin County Bar Association.
to read the Windsor case (DOMA), a brief that BALIF was invited to join as co-amicus.
to read the Perry case (Prop 8), a brief that BALIF coordinated as the lead amicus on behalf of approximately 60 other organizations.
