Stay in DOMA Case in MA

Last week, the DOJ and parties represented by Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders agreed to a stay of the district court’s decision in Gill v. Office of Personnel Management, which successfully challenged the denial of spousal protections in Social Security, federal income tax, federal employees’ and retirees’ benefits, and the issuance of passports to same-sex couples in MA under DOMA Section 3.  Read news coverage here and the district court opinion here.
