This Wednesday will be an historic day as some of the top lawyers in America gather in a San Francisco courtroom to debate whether marriage as we know it is bigoted, discriminatory, and unconstitutional.
Closing arguments in the Prop 8 trial begin at 10am Pacific time, and NOM will be in the courtroom to provide regular updates throughout the day.

Help support the legal defense of marriage!
Finally, defending marriage in the courtroom is an expensive endeavor. Our opponents have hired some of the most famous lawyers in the nation to destroy marriage. If we are to save marriage, we must match them with the best and most committed legal talent available. Fortunately, the Prop 8 lawyers, some of the best constitutional litigators in the country, have been very generous and are not charging anywhere near what they would typically charge. But still, the cost of protecting marriage in the courts has already run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and will be in the millions before all is said and done.
To help offset the costs of marriage litigation, NOM has set up the National Organization for Marriage Legal Defense Fund. Already NOM has given $50,000 to help fund the Prop 8 case, and every penny raised for the NOM Legal Defense Fund will go toward the legal defense of marriage.
