Today's historic rulings from the Supreme Court on gay-marriage issues highlight the work of several lawyers we have featured as Lawdragon 500 members and in other coverage over the years.


Going way back to 2006, former Lawdragon editor Tina Spee wrote a profile of Roberta Kaplan, a promiment litigation partner at Paul Weiss  who even then was fighting for marriage equality through the courts.

Another must-read is Lawdragon publisher Katrina Dewey's in-depth article on the Prop. 8 trial in San Francisco federal court, which features the tandem work of David Boies (photo left by Hugh Williams) and Ted Olson, as well as Olson's partner at Gibson Dunn, Ted Boutrous.

We also published Dewey's lengthy Q&A with Boies in a separate piece last year.

All of theses attorneys are members of the 2012 Lawdragon 500.
