Atlanta Bar Association comes out in support of gay marriage


The Atlanta Bar Association voted unanimously this month to sign on to an amicus brief — a legal brief filed by a person or group that is not a party in the case but has a strong interest in it — urging the U.S. Supreme Court strike down Prop 8 in California and allow for legal marriages of same-sex couples.

The Atlanta Bar Association's  board of directors, which has one openly gay member, is one of numerous non-LGBT bar organizations and other groups recruited to support marriage equality and ask the nation's highest court to rule against Prop 8 by lawyers in California with the Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP firm with offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
