On the Rhetoric of Dissenting Judges: Ideology, History, and Politics in Obergefell v. Hodges

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this article, I identify and look critically at the ideological themes that form the foundation of the dissenting opinions in Obergefell et al. v. Hodges. I contend that these themes speak to much larger issues surrounding the nature of our democracy and why accommodating different ways of being continues to face daunting legal, social, and political hurdles.
