Bush v. Gore Foes Join to Fight Gay Marriage Ban
"...David Boies and Theodore B. Olson appeared on the same team on Wednesday as co-counsel in a federal lawsuit.
"...Their mutual goal: overturning Proposition 8, California's freshly affirmed ban on same-sex marriage. It is a fight that jolted many gay rights advocates.
"...[V]eterans of the legal battles over same-sex marriage questioned the suit's timing, particularly when a conservative majority holds sway in the Supreme Court.
"'We think it's risky and premature,' said Jennifer C. Pizer, marriage project director for Lambda Legal in Los Angeles, adding that a loss at the Supreme Court level could take decades to undo."
