Jim Obergefell, Plaintiff in the Supreme

Court Case Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage

A self-described accidental activist, Mr. Obergefell found himself in the role of caregiver for his partner of more than 20 years, John, as he neared the end of his life due to ALS. An unexpected series of events led to their decision to marry, eventually taking Mr. Obergefell to the Supreme Court and the landmark decision in Obergefell v. Hodges that resulted in victory for marriage equality.
