Solomon Amendments lecture to focus on invalidation of anti-sodomy laws, April 12, Noon, Room 110

March 22, 2004

On July 26, 2003, the United States Supreme Court announced its historic decision in the case of Lawrence v. Texas. In its 6-3 decision to invalidate a Texas anti-sodomy law, the Court concluded that “morals” cannot justify a state's intrusion into the most intimate details of people's lives.

Paul M. Smith, oral advocate in the Lawrence v. Texas decision and managing partner of the Washington D.C law office of Jenner & Block is Tulane Law School’s 2004 Solomon Amendments Speaker. Mr. Smith will offer his unique insider’s perspective on a decision that has forever changed America’s social landscape.

The lecture is sponsored by Lambda Law Alliance, Law and Sexuality, American Constitution Society and Tulane Law School. The public is invited. Reception to follow. For more information: 504-558-3741.
