On Wednesday, March 6, 2013, The Federalist Society will be hosting a discussion about the Defense of Marriage Act at noon in room G-12. This event will feature Ryan Anderson from The Heritage Foundation as well as commentary from our own Dean Infanti. Please join us for a discussion of this interesting topic, on which the Supreme Court will hear arguments on March 27. Lunch will be provided.
Ryan Anderson is the William E. Simon Fellow in Religion and a Free Society at The Heritage Foundation. He received his Bachelor of Arts from Princeton University and he is a doctoral candidate in Political Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, where he received his Master’s degree. Mr. Anderson and two others filed amicus briefs with the 9th Circuit Court on the appeal of Perry v. Schwarzenegger, the case reviewing the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8, and with the 1st Circuit Court on the challenge to the federal Defense of Marriage Act. In January 2013, the co-authors filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court after it agreed to hear the cases.
