U.S. Supreme Court Rulings Bolster Same-Sex Marriage
June 26, 2013

Sarasota, FL - In a landmark decision, the U.S. Supreme Court today ruled against a critical section of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) finding that same-sex couples who are legally married are entitled to equal rights to the benefits under federal law that are afforded to all other married couples.

Today's ruling, a victory for the gay rights movement, voids the portion of DOMA (ratified with bipartisan support in Congress in 1996) that denied all benefits and recognition to same-sex couples. And, by deciding not to hear a case from California (Prop. 8), the Court's action effectively allows same-sex marriages there.

For full details on today's Supreme Court decisions see national reports by the Los Angeles Times and New York Times.
