Notre Dame professor Gerard Bradley files brief in favor of Prop 8

Gerard Bradley, noted professor of law at Notre Dame, specializes in constitutional law and law and religion. He has served as director of Notre Dame’s Natural Law Institute and is the chair of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars.

On January 24 Gerard Bradley filed an amicus curae brief with the U. S. Supreme Court in the Prop 8 case and the federal Defense of Marriage Act. The brief is filed on behalf of Dr. Paul McHugh, professor and psychiatry department chairman at Johns Hopkins, who concludes that sexual orientation is neither a “clearly definable (discrete) category or a fixed and immutable characteristic.”
