Helen M. Alvare, Jack M. Balkin, William N. Eskridge, Jr., Katherine Franke, Robert P. George, Sherif Gorges, John C. Harrison, Andrew Koppelman, Melissa Murray, Douglas NeJaime, Reva B. Siegel, Catherine Smith & Jeremy Waldron, What Obergefell v. Hodges Should Have Said: The Nation's Top Legal Experts Rewrite America's Same-Sex Marriage Decision (Yale University Press, 2020). 

Jack Balkin and an all-star cast of legal scholars, sitting as a hypothetical Supreme Court, rewrite the famous 2015 opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, which guaranteed same-sex couples the right to marry. In eleven incisive opinions, the authors offer the best constitutional arguments for and against the right to same-sex marriage, and debate what Obergefell should mean for the future.
