Stacey Sobel Publishes on Sexual Orientation Discrimination Claims

Professor Stacey Sobel’s article, “When Windsor Isn’t Enough: Why the Court Must Clarify Equal Protection Analysis for Sexual Orientation Classifications,” has been published in the Cornell Journal of Law and Public Policy. This article explores why the Supreme Court needs to provide guidance for courts hearing sexual orientation discrimination claims under the federal Equal Protection Clause and the differing standards of review applied by courts in sexual orientation-related cases in the past. Professor Sobel’s article concludes that sexual orientation classifications merit heightened scrutiny analysis which would provide fairness, predictability and protection for lesbian, gay and bisexual people.
