IBA Signs Amicus Curiae Brief in Fight for Marriage Equality

The Independence Business Alliance signed on to an amicus curiae brief filed by Morgan Lewis in the United States Supreme Court stating that all couples should have the right to marry. The brief makes a business case for legalizing same-sex marriage across the country.

The IBA is one of 379 employers and employer organizations urging the High Court to consider the burdens imposed on both employers and employees by a fractured legal landscape with no uniform rule on same-sex marriage. The amicus curiae brief was filed in the Obergefell v. Hodges case, and urges the US Supreme Court to affirm a uniform principle that all couples share in the right to marry.
