Gearing, Rackner & McGrath celebrates the Supreme Court’s upholding of same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges. We are so grateful to live in this age! “The nature of injustice is that we may not always see it in our own times. The generations that wrote and ratified the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment did not presume to know the extent of freedom in all its dimensions, and so they entrusted to future generations a charter protecting the right of all persons to enjoy liberty as we learn its meaning.” Obergefell v. Hodges (2015).
