Amicus Brief

Romer v. Evans (U.S. Supreme Court, 1995)

The Court, in a 6-3 decision, struck down an amendment to the Colorado Constitution that singled out gay, lesbian and bisexual people and denied them the right to seek and receive specific legal protection from discrimination. ADL, together with six other civil rights organizations, successfully argued that this amendment violated the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
