The Case Against 8 + Q & A with David Boies
Run Time: 109 min. Rating: PG-13
After the California Supreme Court ruled in May 2008 that same-sex couples could marry, a proposition was put to voters to amend the state constitution to define marriage as being between a man and a woman. After that proposition was passed, a group decided to challenge the constitutionality of the amendment. This documentary follows the efforts of the plaintiffs and lawyers over four years as the case winds its way through the courts.
An audience discussion and Q&A with local and legendary lawyer who led the case, David Boies, will follow the film. Bedford Playhouse Founder John Farr will moderate the discussion.
