DOMA section 3 Challenge Filed

90pxgay_wedding_a_by_stefano_bologn Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) filed a 92 page complaint today in the US District Court for Massachusetts.  Same-sex marriage has been recognized as a matter of state law in Massachusetts since the state’s highest court decided Goodridge v. Dept. of Public Health, 798 N.E.2d 941 (Mass. 2003).

I've discussed this over at the Con Law Prof Blog here.
