Championing Marriage Equality

Lieff Cabraser has taken an active role in support of marriage equality in California and nationwide. We believe in the Constitution’s promise of liberty and equality for all. Earlier this year, we joined 378 businesses to ask the United States Supreme Court to strike down state law bans on same-sex marriage in connection with the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, which is being argued before the Court today.

Commenting on the firm’s participation in the case, Kelly M. Dermody, the managing partner of Lieff Cabraser’s San Francisco office, stated, “Our firm recognizes that it is illogical and unfair that we are compelled by Tennessee law to institutionalize discrimination for our own employees in Tennessee even as they fight for justice for our firm’s clients every day. We proudly join the other 378 employers — often adversaries in our cases, but united on this issue — to seek equality under the law for all marriages.”
