Jeremy Goldman on Proposition 8 play: "It's a wonderful idea."

As a law school student at Yale, Jeremy Goldman was enraptured by David Boies' commanding, if losing, performance in Bush v. Gore, the U.S. Supreme Court case that reversed the Florida Supreme Court's request for a ballot recount, awarding the state's 25 electoral votes--and the 2000 presidential election--to George W. Bush. So enraptured, in fact, that he sought and scored a gig working with Boies' firm, Boies Schiller, in its Oakland office. When Proposition 8--the 2008 amendment that ruled that same-sex couples could not marry in California--started heating up, Goldman asked Boies to become involved, eventually earning a spot as second chair to Boies at the 2010 trial to overturn Prop 8. "I would say that the trial compellingly demonstrated that no evidence supports the arguments in favor of Proposition 8," Goldman told us in March.
