U.S. Supreme Court Rules DOMA Unconstitutional

June 26, 2013

The U.S. Supreme Court today issued a major decision ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act violates the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution and is therefore invalid.  The 5-4 ruling issued in U.S. v. Windsor, (Justice Kennedy issuing the majority opinion), represents a major change in U.S. immigration law.  The decision is available online at http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/12pdf/12-307_6j37.pdf
