Description

In June 2015, the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law in all fifty states in a decision as groundbreaking as Ru v Wade and Brown v Board of Education. Through insider accounts and access to key players, this definitive account reveals the dramatic and previously unreported events behind Obergefell v Hodges and the lives at its center. This is a story of law and love-- and a promise made to a dying man who wanted to know how he would be remembered. This forceful and deeply affecting narrative chronicles how a grieving man and his lawyer, against overwhelming odds, introduced the most important gay rights case in US history.

Professional reviews

"George Newbern narrates the story of the legal case that ultimately made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court and removed barriers to same-sex marriage. His straightforward delivery brings home the ordinary lives of the couple at the center of the case, as well as those of the couples whose cases were consolidated as they sought legal recognition for their marriages. Newbern's unembellished approach complements that of the two authors, plaintiff Jim Obergefell and Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Debbie Cenziper. Newbern's clear and steady recitation of the facts keeps the focus squarely on the poignant events that took this issue all the way to the highest court in the land.
