SOTU Crib Sheet for June 30

Today on “State of the Union” David Boies, the attorney who led the fight against Proposition 8 in California, said he’ll push to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states. Boies didn’t say which states he’d target next, but added “there isn't any state that we're giving up on.” John Eastman, president of the National Organization for Marriage, warned that same-sex marriages “[weaken] the bonds of the institution” of marriage between men and women. He added, “we are manufacturing a right to redefine marriage and impose it no matter whether the state or the country wants to have that redefinition. That's judicial tyranny.”

National push for same-sex marriage

David Boies, co-counsel in the Supreme Court case against Prop 8, says the fight isn't over:

"There isn't any state we're taking for granted, but there isn't any state we're giving up on, either. Our goal is to have marriage equality that's guaranteed by the United States constitution enforced in every single state in the union."
