Section 3 of DOMA was deemed unconstitutional:
DOMA’s classification of same-sex spouses was not substantially related to an important government interest. Accordingly, we hold that Section 3 of DOMA violates equal protection and is therefore unconstitutional.OK, let's tally up the judicial activist count on this one.
Judge Dennis Jacobs , appointed by Bush the Elder, voted YEA.
Judge Chester Straub, appointed by Slick Willy, voted NAY.
Judge Christopher F. Droney, appointed by Slick Willy, voted YEA
Maybe we should look at the other court to decide this important question.
Judge Juan Torruella, appointed by St. Reagan, voted YEA.
Judge Sandra Lynch, appointed by Slick Willy, voted YEA.
I can't tell whether they are activists or RINOs.
This is so confusing.
