Brew & View
The Case Against 8

Thursday, July 17, 8:00pm
Harbor View Hotel, Edgartown

With directors Ben Cotner & Ryan White
Discussion moderated by former Congressman Barney Frank

Six months after the California Supreme Court legalized gay marriage, a popular vote in favor of Proposition 8 invalidated that commitment within the state. Ted Olson and David Boies, the unlikely pair of lawyers who had faced off as opposing attorneys in Bush v. Gore, teamed up to fight Proposition 8 all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. This riveting film not only follows the legal battles, but also weaves a portrait of the plaintiffs’ lives in the lead-up to the historic success of their case, and the concomitant overturning of a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, in June 2013
