The Christian Science Monitor interviewed Michael Boucai, in a story on a landmark U.S. Supreme Court case in which justices ruled, 6-3, that firing an employee because of their sexual orientation or gender identity violates federal law. “This is as important a ruling as Obergefell [v. Hodges],” the 2015 decision legalizing same-sex marriage, Boucai said, “simply because employment is such a basic human need.”
