    For those confident that the Supreme Court’s decisions in Wednesday’s same-sex marriage cases, Perry v. Hollingsworth and United States v. Windsor, will make marriage an issue of states’ rights, think again. David Boies, co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs in Perry, told Candy Crowley on Sunday’s State of the Union that the Supreme Court’s decision appropriately “invalidated” states’ rights: "California decided. California passed Proposition 8. What the Court was doing was invalidating California’s choice, and that is exactly what the courts are supposed to do under the 14th Amendment." The principles from the Supreme Court’s rulings on Wednesday are “now going...

    Rhode Island’s blue-on-blue showdown is heating up. Famed litigator David Boies is taking a 96 percent pay cut to represent the state against recalcitrant public sector unions. The New York Times reports: Mr. Boies became involved, he said, because he was convinced that Rhode Island’s pension troubles were just the tip of a $5 trillion iceberg of unsecured retirement promises to the nation’s millions of public workers. “This is something that can cripple state and municipal governments at a time when the federal government is, more and more, cutting back on the services it provides,” he said. Public unions and...

    Article 1 Section 7.5 of the California constitution states that "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." (see story) This amendment was voted on and passed by the people of California and confirmed by the California State Supreme Court on Tuesday May 26, 2009 it is the law. But nothing is enough for homosexuals short of getting what they want no matter what. And in the process homosexuals have disrespected the California voters...

    Maverick filmmaker Michael Moore took the first step on Wednesday in launching his own probe into the U.S. government's investigation of him for making an unauthorized trip to Cuba to film scenes for his latest movie "SiCKO." Moore's attorney David Boies sent the U.S. Treasury Department a Freedom of Information Act request for all documents in its possession regarding its civil investigation of Moore which was launched by the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control. The Office of Foreign Assets Control told Moore earlier this month that it was conducting a civil investigation to see if he violated the U.S....

    May 13, 2007 -- First he helped Al Gore fight George W. Bush. Now, he's helping Michael Moore do the same thing. High-powered attorney David Boies - chief counsel in Gore's recount battle against Bush in the 2000 presidential election - has been hired to help the filmmaker fight a federal probe into his new film "Sicko," according to The Weinstein Company. Moore landed in hot water when he took ailing 9/11 responders to Cuba seeking health care as part of the documentary, which highlights problems with the American health care system and HMOs.

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - An antitrust lawsuit filed Monday against Exxon Mobil Corp. and BP PLC claims the two oil giants are restricting the nation's supply of natural gas and keeping prices at record highs. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Fairbanks, says the two companies acted together to eliminate competition for the exploration, development and marketing of natural gas from Alaska's North Slope to U.S. markets. "The only reason for them to collusively not to sell is to try to continue the scarcity that has driven natural gas prices to historic highs," said David Boies, the...

    (CNSNews.com) - The lawyer who represented Al Gore in the hotly contested Florida post-election recount in 2000 is now facing ethics charges in what one local newspaper described as a "bizarre" case. The Florida Bar's grievance committee found probable cause to charge David Boies with three counts of ethics violations. The ruling on July 10 accused Boies of misconduct, giving financial assistance to a client and improperly supervising other lawyers. The bar's finding is comparable to an indictment, and a judge appointed by the Florida Supreme Court will hear the case. No timeline for resolving the matter has been set....

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- The lawyer who represented Al Gore in his Supreme Court challenge of Florida results in the 2000 presidential election has been accused of ethics violations in another case.

    PHILADELPHIA -- Adelphia Communications apparently overreported its cable television subscribers by about 358,000 by including all the customers in joint ventures it owns only a portion of, an analyst said. Aryeh Bourkoff, a fixed-income analyst at UBS Warburg, also issued a client update today citing "the very high likelihood of a near-term bankruptcy filing" by the nation's sixth-largest cable company. Adelphia's board met today at attorney David Boies' office in New York, a secretary at the office said. Adelphia officials wouldn't comment on the meeting or a potential bankruptcy filing, said a spokesman, Eric Andrus. Adelphia officials also declined comment...
