After more than two decades of legal battles, rallies, protests and campaigns, proponents of gay marriage say they are increasingly confident as they await their day in court.
A federal judge said Monday he would decide soon on whether to unseal videotape recordings from the 2010 trial on Proposition 8, California's voter-approved initiative affirming one man, one woman marriage.
Not only is there growing support for gay marriage, Mr. Boutrous said — citing the American Academy of Pediatrics' new support for gay marriage as being "in the best interest" of children announced last week — but the legal arguments "directly support and point in one direction, and that's that Proposition 8 must be struck down."
