The Case Against 8

The Case Against 8 Release Date: June 6, 2014

The big screen documentary The Case Against 8 (one of few HBO movies that get theatrical releases) takes an inside look at the groundbreaking Supreme Court case that overturned Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage. Five years in the making, with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the powerhouse legal team of Ted Olson and David Boies, who previously faced off as opposing counsel in Bush v. Gore, along with the four plaintiffs in the suit, the film provides a definitive account of the battle that effectively ended marriage discrimination in California.

The Case Against 8 is the winner of the 2014 SXSW Audience Award and Sundance Film Festival Best Directing Award.
