Bonauto U.S. Supreme Court Debut

By Charlotte Robinson, March 31, 2015
Finally Mary L. Bonauto the Civil Rights Project Director for Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) & the architect of gay marriage in this country will argue before the U.S. Supreme Court on April 28th for gay & lesbian couples who are currently being excluded from marriage. She will stand on behalf of the Michigan case DeBoer v. Snyder & the Kentucky case Love v. Beshear. Bonauto stated, “I’m humbled to be standing up for the petitioners from Kentucky & Michigan who seek the freedom to marry, along with attorneys Carole Stanyar, Dana Nessel, Ken Mogill & Robert Sedler & with support from the other legal teams in Ohio & Tennessee. The road that we’ve all travelled to get here has been built by so many people who believe that marriage is a fundamental right. Gay & lesbian couples should not be excluded from the joy, the security & the full citizenship signified by that institution. I believe the Court will give us a fair hearing & I look forward to the day when all LGBT Americans will be able to marry the person they love.” Janson Wu, GLAD’s Executive Director concluded, “Our community is extremely fortunate to have Mary as our advocate. To say she has deep knowledge of the issues is an understatement; it is equally an understatement to say she has a sharp legal mind, a big heart & a generous spirit.”
