WASHINGTON – Upon news that the law firm of King & Spalding has filed a motion to withdraw from defense of the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act – Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, issued the following statement:

“King & Spalding has rightly chosen to put principle above politics in dropping its involvement in the defense of this discriminatory and patently unconstitutional law.  We are pleased to see the firm has decided to stand on the right side of history and remain true to its core values.

“Speaker Boehner is likely to pursue continued defense of this odious law.  However, law firms that value LGBT equality should remain committed to those values.”

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
