“Massachusetts case may be key in gay marriage fight”

    The National Law Journal: While the high-profile, Ted Olson- and David Boies-managed legal fight against California’s Proposition 8 captures headlines, a carefully planned case quietly underway in Massachusetts federal court could be the gay marriage test with the greatest national impact . . . Although he called the Massachusetts challenges ‘well-planned and coordinated,’ Brian Raum, senior counsel to the Alliance Defense Fund, which supports the 1996 law, said, ‘I think all four suits are serious challenges. We are confident they ultimately will not prevail. The federal law is clearly constitutional.’ . . . Outrage then shifted to the law’s supporters who felt the procreation argument was a major leg in the law’s defense. ‘The government has an interest in creating unions that lend themselves to responsible procreation such that kids are raised with their married biological mother and father,’ said Raum, whose Alliance Defense Fund is an amicus party in Smelt.”
