20. That is not why DOMA ended up in front of SCOTUS,

And in fact the refusal of the Executive Branch to argue on its behalf almost made the Supreme Court kick it out for lack of standing.

It wound up before the Supreme Court because an injured party challenged the law as unconstitutional. When that happens, it is the courts who decide the matter.
