DOMA Case Headed to the Supreme Court

As you’ve probably already heard, the Supreme Court has granted cert. in a Defense of Marriage Act case and the California Prop 8 case. What you might not know is that the DOMA case headed to the Court is United States v. Windsor, the case I’ve written about previously here and here, and which hails from my old stomping grounds—the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and the Southern District of New York. So if you’d like some background on United States v. Windsor and its path to the Supreme Court, check out my old posts.
