Abby Rubenfeld - Abby Rubenfeld is an attorney in private practice in Nashville, Tennessee, who focuses primarily on family law, civil litigation, and civil rights issues. She was formerly the legal director of Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, served for 7 years on the Board of Directors of the Human Rights Campaign, and for the past 10 years has been a proud member of the National Family Law Advisory Council for the National Center for Lesbian Rights. She is also a former chair of the American Bar Association Section on Individual Rights, and former chair of the National Lesbian and Gay Law Association. In 1996, she was successful in overturning the Tennessee sodomy criminal statute, and she is currently challenging the constitutionality of the Tennessee anti-marriage equality law and constitutional amendment, with the backing of NCLR. She graduated from Princeton University cum laude, where she lettered in crew and basketball (she is the shortest person in the history of Princeton to letter in basketball-a record that will probably never be broken).
