Amicus Brief: Obergefell v. Hodges (US Supreme Court)


The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights Committee and the Vance Center for International Justice filed an amicus brief in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case currently before the U.S. Supreme Court addressing marriage equality for same-sex couples. The brief reviews the situations in five countries—the Netherlands, Canada, South Africa, Argentina, and New Zealand—on different continents that have introduced marriage equality, and asks the Court to look to them for guidance as it hears arguments on the issue.
