Columbus Event on Same-Sex Marriage

Next Thursday, December 9, I will be in Columbus, Ohio, to take part in a lunchtime discussion/debate titled “Does the Constitution Require Same-Sex Marriage?” My fellow participants will be Case Western Reserve law professor (and occasional Bench Memos blogger) Jonathan Adler and Capital University law professor Mark Strasser. 

The event, sponsored by the Columbus lawyers chapter of the Federalist Society, will take place from noon to 1:15 at the Athletic Club of Columbus and will include lunch. The cost is $20 (but just $5 for students). To RSVP or for more information, contact Maurice Thompson at
