Lessons for Law Reform Litigators

Alan Morrison in the latest issue of th The Green Bag
"To many, persuading super lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies to represent the challengers of Prop 8 seemed like the most significant part of the story and the critical lesson: get marquee and bipartisan names on your side. But to me, the District Judge Vaughn Walker’s insistence on holding a trial, with live witnesses on both sides, was the best thing for the plaintiffs and the worst news for the defenders of Prop 8."
