Lynne Rambo headshotLynne Rambo, professor of law at Texas A&M University School of Law, appeared on several channel 4 news programs in February.

Professor Rambo lends constitutional law expertise to the discussion about the Texas Attorney General's plan to appeal the ruling lifting the ban on gay marriage. Professor Rambo spoke in studio on the Feb. 27 “Good Day” morning news show and was interviewed in her law school office for the evening news, both on local Fox channel 4.

Professor Rambo says many federal district courts have ruled that banning gay marriage violates the Constitution – specifically, the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause, per Fox’s Lari Barager’s report.

"The Equal Protection Clause is there to ensure majorities do not enact burdensome laws on the minority just because they're different," said Rambo.

Professor Rambo also appeared on Fox 4 on Feb. 5 in both the morning and evening news programs. The topic concerned media access to the hearing on the controversial probation terms for Ethan Couch, the drunk-driving teenager who killed four people. Professor Rambo discussed Judge Jean Boyd’s ruling to deny media access to the hearing and what is in the interest of the child.
