The Defense of Marriage Act challenge is making its way to the United States Supreme Court. We already talked about the petition filed by BLAG, or the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group. BLAG’s petition called for the Supreme Court to invalidate the First Circuit’s ruling that struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act as unconstitutional this spring.
Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has now filed a 37-page brief, reports Reuters. The brief was in response to BLAG’s petition.
