Ind. Decisions - Who will be arguing for the Indiana same-sex marriage plaintiffs? [Updated]
There was some dispute the end of last month as to who would argue the consolidated plaintiffs' position before the 7th Circuit today, as there were three sets of plaintiffs, with three sets of attorneys. The Baskin counsel petitioned the court to be permitted to represent all three sets of plaintiffs, as detailed in this July 31st ILB post. The 7th Circuit summarily denied the Lambda Legal motion, as posted here, August 1st:
IT IS ORDERED that the motion is DENIED. In the absence of an agreement, plaintiffs' counsel in appeal nos. 14-2386, 14-2387, and 14-2388 will each be given five minutes to present an oral argument.The attorneys subsequently worked it out. Lambda Legal attorney, Camilla B. Taylor, is to argue on behalf its Baskin plaintiffs, Ken Falk of the ACLU is to represent the plaintiffs in the two other combined cases, Fuji and Lee. I believe the agreed time split is 8 minutes and 12 minutes.
