David Boies, who represented the plaintiffs challenging California's Proposition 8, said that advocates for marriage equality are looking to legalize gay marriage in all 50 states.
“Our goal is to have marriage equality, that is guaranteed by the United States constitution, enforced in every single state in the Union,” Boies said on CNN's State of the Union.
“There isn't any state we're giving up on,” he added.
Boies argued Sunday that the decision made by the Supreme Court can be applied on a national scale, rather than just California. Earlier this week, he told CNN’s Gloria Borger that proponents of same-sex marriage plan to get marriage equality in all 50 states
within the next five years. Currently, 13 states plus the District of Columbia approve same-sex marriage.
