How did one of the nation's top legal strategists convince the Supreme Court to support marriage equality?

In her riveting new book, Then Comes Marriage: United States v. Windsor and the Defeat of Doma, renowned attorney Roberta Kaplan gives a personal account of her successful argument in favor of this landmark ruling.

Called a "true American hero" by President Bill Clinton, Ms. Kaplan details her experiences and struggles on the front lines of this historic civil rights victory, both inside and out of the courtroom.

Plus, she'll touch on how this victory paved the way to legalizing same sex marriage nationwide.


Kara Swisher, Silicon Valley tech reporter and Co-Executive Editor of Re/code, moderates the discussion.

Roberta Kaplan is a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP. Since winning United States v. Windsor, she litigated the case against the gay marriage ban in Mississippi and filed "The People's Brief" in the Supreme Court case of Obergefell v. Hodges. She lives in New York City with her wife and son.
