Photos and Reactions from #SCOTUS Decisions on #Prop8 and #DOMA Today

I’m a huge proponent of equality for all and I thought it was important to document some photos and reactions from the Supreme Court decisions to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act and dismiss Proposition 8.

What the decisions mean:

Strike down of DOMA: same-sex couples who are legally married will be entitled to equal treatment under federal law. DOMA “violates basic due process and equal protection principles applicable to the Federal Government,” Justice Kennedy wrote.

Dismissal of Prop 8: case was dismissed on the basis that the petitioners don’t have standing. So, since the California courts had already struck down Prop 8, the lawyers opposing the bill don’t have standing to defend it. This means SCOTUS validated the rulings of courts rejecting Prop 8.
