Jonathan Rauch (a Leading Proponent of Same-Sex Marriage Rights) on the Paul Clement Matter

The post is at Independent Gay Forum’s CultureWatch. The conclusion:

Just guessing, but I don’t think Paul Clement’s having been pushed to a smaller firm is going to change the Supreme Court’s judgment on DOMA. I don’t think it’s going to deter the other side from going to court. I don’t even think it will deprive the other side of good lawyers. It did show gays have some muscle. It didn’t show we’re smart about using it.
