PER SCOTUSBLOG, Clinton-Era “Defense Of Marriage Act” struck down 5-4.
UPDATE: Here is the opinion.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Based on a quick read, this seems like the key sentence: “What the State of New York treats as alike the federal law deems unlike by a law designed to injure the same class the State seeks to protect.”
STILL MORE: Prop. 8 case goes on standing grounds, as expected. Ann Althouse has more.
FINALLY: Jonah Goldberg has the last word: Missing the big story on SCOTUS gay marriage ruling? Court delivers huge win to pro-SSM Koch brothers! #heh. Heh, indeed.
