With exclusive access to ‘superlawyers’ Theodore Olson and David Boies – as well as actor, director, producer Rob Reiner – CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger traces the unusual legal journey of the case for same-sex marriage before the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, DC, this week. Borger’s 30-minute documentary, The Marriage Warriors, debuts Saturday, Mar. 30 at 7:30pm and 10:30pm on CNN. All times Eastern.
Borger’s reporting contains exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Olson and Boies as they prepare and practice their arguments for the high court. The two men discuss their unlikely legal alliance – they were opponents in the epic battle, Bush v. Gore, the case that decided the 2000 presidential election.
Just as the nation elected its first African-American president, in California, the election also brought another development. A ballot initiative, California’s Proposition 8, was approved by voters, denying the right to marry for same-sex couples in the state. Reiner recounts how he and LGBT rights activist Chad Griffin, met shortly after the election to decide whether to take the issue to the courts. A Reiner friend told them that Olson, a conservative, was actually a supporter of same-sex marriage. Having him in front of the court challenge would be a “home run,” Reiner said. Olson then suggested his former Democratic rival, Boies, to be his co-counsel, resulting in a bipartisan “dream team” for those fighting Proposition 8. FULL POST
