Boies: Prop 8’s Defense Witnesses Were a ‘Predictable’ Disaster

The defense witnesses that Protect Marriage called during Perry v. Schwarzenegger were, in a word, terrible. How’d Ted Olson and David Boies get ’em to embarrass themselves?

Many of the witnesses lead defense attorney Charles Cooper planned to call never took the stand. And those that did were a disgrace. Kenneth Miller, on the stand, acknowledged DOMA is discriminatory. David Blankenhorn got up there and said gay marriage is a good thing for America.

Speaking at the Aspen Ideas Festival, Boies calls the gaffes “almost predictable.”
