Professor Drobac Offers Commentary on Same-Sex Marriage Cases
IU McKinney Law Professor Jennifer Drobac offered commentary March 26, 2013 on the same-sex marriage cases that appeared in a story in the Indianapolis Star. The story was about Hollingsworth v. Perry, the challenge to California’s ban on same-sex marriage that was argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on March 26, 2013; and United States v. Windsor, the challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act, argued on March 27, 2013.
“For a state that prides itself on being family friendly, Indiana is penalizing people who are choosing to dedicate themselves emotionally and financially to mutual advancement and support,” Professor Drobac said in the article. “It’s bad for families and business. That’s why major corporations in the state have raised concerns about a possible state constitutional amendment that would make Indiana’s ban even tighter.”
Professor Drobac is known for her scholarship in the area of family law and adolescents. Her latest book, titled Worldly But Not Yet Wise, concerns adolescent neurological and psychosocial development and the law. It will be published in 2013 by University of Chicago Press.
