The SCOTUS ruling making same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states, has HR-policy implications (to state the obvious). Here is an article penned by Ed Silverstein on the matter of HR policy and same-sex marriage.

Here is an interesting companion article on The judge who ruled to legalize gay marriage.. in 2003.


The Ultimate Rainmaker (it takes a village)

Here is a high-value article, penned by Heidi K. Gardner - Distinguished Scholar, Harvard Law School Center on the Legal Profession, on the topic of rainmaking and the importance of collaboration. Suffice to say (and I say it often), it takes a village to make it rain.
