Nebraska’s same-sex marriage ban: NU law professor Eric Berger can help interpret forthcoming federal court ruling

Eric Berger, associate professor of law at the University of Nebraska, is available to assist reporters after U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon rules in a ACLU challenge of Nebraska’s ban on same-sex marriage.  At a hearing Thursday, Bataillon asked attorneys to submit briefs by Monday (Feb. 23), and said he would rule “expeditiously.”

Berger, who specializes in constitutional law, has studied legal developments regarding same-sex marriage for a number of years, both as a practicing attorney and as a legal scholar.  As an associate with Jenner & Block in Washington D.C., he worked on litigation involving same-sex marriage.  He also has authored law review articles and made presentations on same-sex marriage and constitutional interpretation.
