Faculty Experts Can Comment on Same-Sex Marriage Rulings

June 13, 2013 – 

When the U.S. Supreme Court announces its decisions in Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor, the following Rutgers School of Law–Newark faculty will be available to provide expert commentary on the rulings:

Professor Carlos A. Ball is author of the books The Right to Be Parents: LGBT Families and the Transformation of Parenthood and From the Closet to the Courtroom: Five LGBT Rights Cases That Have Changed Our Nation and is co-editor of one of the leading casebooks on sexuality and the law. His blogs for the Huffington Post include “Why the Supreme Court Should Hear the DOMA Lawsuit” and “Why the Proposition 8 Ruling Has a Good Chance of Being Affirmed by the Supreme Court.”

Contact Professor Ball at cball@kinoy.rutgers.edu or 973-353-3008.

Professor Suzanne A. Kim writes about the intersection of gender, sexuality, and family law. In “The Neutered Parent,” published in the Yale Journal of Law and Feminism, she explores the bias towards traditional marriage-based models of parental sexuality in custody and visitation rulings. Her forthcoming book is titled Marriage Equalities: Gender and Social Norms in Same-Sex and Different-Sex Marriage.
