Probably tomorrow the Supreme Court will announce which of the cases it will hear that may alter DOMA.
I am hoping it is Edie Windsors Case as are many others who see it as the best lever in overturning this travesty signed by Bill Clinton.
"In addition to its facts, Windsor also adds a new dimension to the DOMA jurisprudential landscape. Among the ten federal court rulings to invalidate DOMA thus far, Windsor is the first where a circuit court applied heightened scrutiny to the statute's sexual orientation-based classification. In the 2-1 ruling, Chief Judge Dennis Jacobs followed the high court's traditional analysis, asking whether gay people have suffered a history of discrimination; whether sexual orientation is a distinguishing characteristic; whether sexual orientation relates to an individual's ability to contribute to society, and whether gay people are relatively politically powerless. All of these inquiries, he found, warrant intermediate scrutiny for classifications that, like DOMA's, distinguish between gay and non-gay people. "
I love the irony of Kathryn Lehman a Republican lesbian who helped write it is now fighting to help get it overturned.
