Legal issues arising from the sexual diversity of our society are front and center in many legal fields. The Supreme Court, which selectively controls its docket, now considers sexuality-related cases almost every term, and the pace of litigation in lower courts keeps increasing. Responding to the surge of new developments, the authors have reorganized the front end of the book to emphasize the diversity of issues by providing a chronological journey through the Supreme Court’s treatment of sexuality law issues from the middle of the twentieth century to the present. Chapters on sexual orientation and gender identity issues in the lower courts follow. The family law chapters have been reworked to account for the decisions in Windsor and Obergefell and the numerous issues that have arisen since implementation of these cases began. The final chapter concludes with selected topics on subjects yet to receive Supreme Court review.
