Never expected to type those words.

DOMA has been struck down on both state rights and equal protection grounds.

As for California, the SCOTUS decided appellants had no standing to appeal from the decision of the California Court. This means that the decision of the California court stands. That means that same gender marriage is the law of California.

I cannot believe it. The most I hoped for was that DOMA would be struck down on the ground that marriage has always been a matter of state, not federal law.

A great day for equal rights and lovers who wish to marry.

A bad day for bigots and haters.
