Brief by Dept. of Justice supporting its motion to dismiss and opposing plantiffs' motion for summary judgment, filed 01/29/10, in Gill et al. v. Office of Personnel Management [No. 1:09-cv-10309-JLT, (U.S.Dist.Ct., D. Mass.)
(Thanks to California attorney Rick Xiao for alerting to me to today's filing.)
Plaintiffs in this case challenge section 3 of the federal DOMA, which bars the federal government from recognizing the marriages of same-sex couples. As a result, married, same-sex couples are ineligible for over 1100 federal benefits.
I expect to update this post.
We are behind
