The recent passage of Prop 8 in California has once again raised concerns about how legal institutions value the rights of gay Americans. A similar issue was considered by the Supreme Court in Romer v. Evans when voters in Colorado passed a referendum which prohibited state and local governments from passing anti-discrimination laws to protect gay rights. Professor Thomas Metzloff will show a recently-completed documentary about the origins of the Romer v. Evans case and then discuss its application to the current legal environment. Bagel lunch provided. Sponsored by the Duke Law Chapter of the American Constitution Society. For more information, contact Qais Ghafary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
