RBGG Founding Partner Sandy Rosen is quoted in an article that appears in The Recorder on March 25, 2013, Toward a more perfect union that discusses the legal history of gay marriage.
“If the Supreme Court agrees with San Francisco, it may have to overrule its own 1972 order in Baker v. Nelson, where it summarily dismissed an argument for same-sex marriage. San Francisco lawyer Sanford Rosen, of Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld, remembers tracking that case 41 years ago as a young attorney at the ACLU. “It was a different world then,” says Rosen, a former resident of Baltimore who still can’t quite believe that Maryland voters ushered in same-sex marriage last fall. “When an idea’s time has come, it’s like a tidal wave.””
