    LGBTQ-SCOTUS:

    A year at the Court with a queer perspective


    Join the LGBT Bar LA on Thursday, October 2, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. for a free, educational, and interesting lunch time teleconference. This activity is approved for 1.0 hours of general MCLE credit for California Attorneys.


    For the last two decades, members of our community have looked to the Supreme Court for victories that have benefited the LGBTQ+ community — overturning sodomy laws and the Defense of Marriage Act and legalizing same-sex marriage. The lower federal courts have followed that lead, invalidating Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and finding that federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. In the next term, the Supreme Court reconstituted by the current Administration’s appointments will address for the first time. In this discussion, Dimitri Portnoi will review the last and next terms of the Supreme Court from the perspective of LGBTQ+ people, issues, and rights.

    Dimitri Portnoi is an experienced attorney experienced in litigating issues of civil rights, constitutional law, and appellate issues. He is a veteran of multiple civil rights battles relevant to the LGBTQ+ community, including the challenges to Nevada’s discriminatory same-sex marriage law, the anti-transgender laws of multiple states, and laws restricting reproductive rights. A sample of the organizations Dimitri has represented or partnered with include Lambda Legal, the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, the National Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and many others. Outside of his pro bono representations, Dimitri has a diverse practice representing and counseling clients in complex commercial litigation, First Amendment and other constitutional issues, and appellate litigation.

    Dial-in information will be provided to all registrants by October 1, 2019, the day before the MCLE.
