Response to Enrique (Reply #73)

Fri Feb 24, 2012, 01:09 PM

103. Not correct, I spoke to an attorney that worked on this for the White House.

The administration was very careful to use a number of lower court and SCOTUS decisions to make the case that they believed that the particular portions of DOMA were clearly unconstitutional and therefore should not be enforced.

The upshot of that is, if the SCOTUS directly finds that those portions are Constitutional, the White House would start enforcing them again.
