LLDEF files challenge to DOMA
Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund (LLDEF) has a writeup on the case “Golinski vs. United States Office of Personnel Management and John Berry, Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management in his Official Capacity”, link here. LLDEF has filed an amended complaint challenging the constitutionality of DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act (1996). This was done after a complicated series of events where a federal judge dismissed an earlier spousal benefits discrimination complaint and invited a direct challenge to DOMA.
