520    The author describes five lawsuits that have helped change
       the way lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual (LGBT) 
       people are treated in the United States. The cases are 
       Braschi v. Stahl Associates, in which an appellate court 
       recognize that two men can constitute a family; Nabozny v.
       Podlesny (1996), in which a Wisconsin jury recognized that
       a bullied gay teenager had had his constitutional rights 
       violated by school officials who looked the other way; 
       Rome v. Evans, in which the U.S. Supreme Court held that 
       it is unconstitutional to deny LGBT people the opportunity
       to seek antidiscrimination protection under the law; Baehr
       v. Lewin (1993), in which the Hawaii Supreme Court 
       questioned the constitutionality of denying same-sex 
       couples the right to marry; and Lawrence v. Texas (2003), 
       in which the U.S. Supreme Court held that the government 
       cannot criminalize private and consensual gay sex. For 
       each case, he offers a description of the facts involved, 
       a discussion of the legal issues involved and how they 
       were dealt with in the litigation, and an analysis of the 
       legal and social impact of the case.
