California Lawyer Attorneys of the Year Awards: Shannon Minter and Therese Stewart

03/01/09 California Lawyer: "The California Lawyer Attorneys of the Year Awards recognize lawyers throughout the state whose legal work made a profound impact in 2008." Among the recipients are National Center for Lesbian Rights Legal Director Shannon Price Minter and San Francisco Chief Deputy City Attorney Therese M. Stewart for their successful argument in the landmark ruling, In re Marriage Cases, 43 Cal. 4th 757 (2008). "Other California lawyers noted for their work on the case include Amy Margolin and Bobbie Wilson at San Francisco's Howard Rice Nemerovski Canady Falk & Rabkin, who were heavily involved in the trial strategies and logged hundreds of hours pro bono for the city since 2004, when Mayor Gavin Newsom first ordered the issuing of same-sex marriage licenses."
