Two Down, Many to Go

Another federal court judge has ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional.   U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken has ruled that DOMA, passed in 1996, violates constitutional laws because it denies  federal benefits to same-sex spouses married under California law, according to The Huffington Post.

This past February, a San Fransisco judge also declared the federal law unconstitutional in a separate case. The ruling is under appeal and set to go before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in September.
