Engaging and largely untold, "From the Closet to the Courtroom" explores how five pivotal lawsuits have altered LGBT history. Beginning each case narrative at the center--with the litigants and their lawyers--law professor Carlos Ball follows the stories behind each crucial lawsuit. He traces the parties from their communities to the courtroom, while deftly weaving in rich sociohistorical context and analyzing the lasting legal and political impact of each judicial outcome.
