Defense of Marriage Act Ruled Unconstitutional

The Defense of Marriage Act has been ruled been ruled unconstitutional by the second appeals court.
  The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals joins the 1st Circuit court in Boston, which handed down its ruling in May, rejecting a key part of the law. However, the 2nd Circuit upheld a lower court ruling that DOMA unconstitutionally denies federal benefits to lawfully married same-sex couples.
