Attorney Tamara Packard Plays Pivotal Role in Protecting Marriage Equality

In the wake of U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb's historic ruling declaring the state's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional, Attorney Tamara Packard is leading the effort to ensure that same-sex couples are able to marry in Wisconsin. She was part of a team in Dane County that prepared for the possibility that the federal court would strike down the ban and enable marriages to begin immediately.

The session, held at the Alliant Center in Madison, is one of a series intended to assist Wisconsin workplaces to become more age diverse.

Loeb's Work Benefits Solidarity Singers

Since early 2011, protesters have gathered at the Capitol Building to vocalize and demonstrate their opposition to the policies of Governor Walker's administration, and Pines Bach has stood beside the protesters every step of the way.  Among other forms of demonstration, singers have been gathering for Solidarity Sing-Alongs on the ground floor of the Capitol Building to sing their protests to the anti-worker laws enacted in 2011.  News reports indicate Capitol Police have issued a total of 743 citations since then, ranging from conducting illegal pickets, rallies and parades, to demonstrating without a permit.  As of January 2014, over 400 citations were still pending resolution in the Dane County courts.  The citations are being prosecuted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice.  Attorney Jordan Loeb is currently representing seven charged Solidarity Singers, and has dealt the prosecution significant blows in the past two months.
