Couples in court case lack diversity

12/18/08 Bay Area Reporter: The amended petition in Strauss v. Horton adds seven couples to the plaintiffs. Howard Rice represents the couples pro bono. Two Howard Rice partners, Amy Margolin and Bobbie Wilson, respond to criticism that "none [of the couples] are black or Hispanic, leaving a void as LGBTs of color seek to be visible." Margolin noted that "[o]ur couples come from all walks of life with a variety of different backgrounds," while Wilson acknowledged that "the face of the fight has for the most part been white."
