ADF: Texas judge declares DOMA unconstitutional

by D. Bennett

The Alliance Defense Fund reports that a Texas judge, in an effort to hear a divorce case between two men who were married in Massachusetts, has declared the state’s Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. The judge has also struck down the voter-approved constitutional amendment limiting marriage to one man and one woman.

ADF attorneys are preparing to file an amicus curiae brief opposing the court’s ruling.
