Federal Judge Finds Portions of DOMA to be Unconstitutional

U.S. District Judge Joseph Tauro of Boston, MA has ruled in two separate cases that The Defense of Marriage Act is in direct violation of the 10th amendment as well as the equal protection clause of the US Constitution.

The scope of both cases targeted a single portion of DOMA known as section 3 which limits the federal definition of marriage as a relationship between one man and one woman.
