New DOMA Brief More LGBT-Friendly

August 17, 2009
The second Department of Justice brief filed yesterday in response to the Smelt v. United States lawsuit challenging the Defense of Marriage Act was not only much more palatable, but also made some historic concessions. The brief clearly states the president's position regarding DOMA: "With respect to the merits, this Administration does not support DOMA as a matter of policy, believes that it is discriminatory, and supports its repeal."
