Marriage Equality Dream Team Olson & Boies Joins Lawsuit For Marriage Equality In Virginia

Olsen and Boies

Hot off their marriage equality win with Prop 8 in California, Ted Olson and David Boies, will today join the Bostic v. Rainey, lawsuit in Virginia, a case challenging the state’s ban on same-sex marriage which is also  expected to go to the Supreme Court

Washington Post:

The American Foundation for Equal Rights — with its attention-getting political odd couple of conservative Republican lawyer Theodore Olson and liberal Democrat David Boies — will announce Monday it is joining a lawsuit against what the lawyers called Virginia’s “draconian” laws prohibiting same-sex marriages, the recognition of such marriages performed where they are legal, and civil unions.

Olson and Boies were invited to join the case by attorneys for the plaintiffs, Norfolk residents Timothy Bostic and Tony London who were turned down for a marriage application.

Ted Olson who lives in the state calls it “an attractive target”

This will make for some delicious theater watching Olson and Boies mop the floor with Ken “Sodomy Law” Cuccinelli, if he is involved in the case.
