The Supreme Court heard oral argument in United States v. Windsor, the challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). At issue was whether the Court had jurisdiction to rule on the federal government’s case, and whether the House Republican leaders as defenders of DOMA had Article III “standing” to pursue their appeal. After arguments on jurisdiction, issues of the constitutionality of section III of DOMA were addressed. Lawyers argued over the requirement in the law that limited the definition of marriage to a union between a man and woman, thus denying federal spousal rights to same-sex marriages conferred on couples in states where the practice had been made legal. close
