Obama Declares DOMA Unconstitutional

Today, on the recommendation of the Attorney General, Preside Obama declared that discrimination based on sexual orientation should be presumed unconstitutional.

In response, the Department of Justice has concluded that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional and indefensible.

This means the Department of Justice will no longer defend DOMA in court, and may have greater implications for the marriage equality trials already in the courts.
