DOMA! The Administration says the Defense of Marriage Act should be struck down!

Ed Henry

email from FNC’s Ed Henry:

Today the Obama Justice Dept filed briefs in U.S. v. Windsor that basically argue that the Defense of Marriage Act that bans same sex marriage on federal level should be struck down.

 

Significance is that this is only an incremental step in the administration’s further tilt in favor of gay rights — this move was expected b/c the Justice Dept had already said it would no longer defend DOMA in court.

 

The more important move to watch is whether the admin files a friend of the court brief in California’s Prop 8 case by end of month
