An Openly Gay Supreme Court Justice?


Founder of Equal Rep,
Sousa said today: "Kathleen Sullivan is hands down one of the most
qualified candidates. She is a Marshall scholar and former Stanford Law
dean whom constitutional law legend Laurence Tribe once called 'the
most extraordinary student I had ever had.' She is the author of the
nation's leading casebook in constitutional law, has litigated before
the Supreme Court, and has been named one of the 100 most influential
lawyers in America by the National Law Journal. In addition to this
impressive list of qualifications, Sullivan is also a woman and openly
gay, which would bring some much-needed diversity to the Supreme Court."
