DOMA: Still Unconstitutional

We’ll hear back from SCOTUS in June regarding California’s Prop 8, but in the the meantime the real topline structure that needs to come down is DOMA. Today, the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals flatly stated that the law is unconstitutional.

There are more of these case worming their way up the system, and by the time SCOTUS likely hears the matter, they would be very, very hard pressed to come up with a ruling that does anything short than strike the entire law down. Which is not only good for gay marriage advocates, but for libertarians and states rights supporters writ large.
