Stepping up its litigation challenging Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act, GLAD today filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts both an opposition to the federal government’s motion to dismiss Gill v. Office of Personnel Management, and a motion for summary judgment seeking a final ruling on the law in favor of the plaintiffs.
