Attorney Ted Olson

Attorney Ted Olson, right, will argue for opponents of California's Proposition 8. He was solicitor general for President George W. Bush and is former head of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel in the Reagan administration. He is a prominent Supreme Court litigator, and has handled cases including Bush v. Gore, which he argued for George W. Bush after the presidential election in 2000, and the Citizens United case in 2010, in which the court overturned restrictions on corporate political spending.
