Same-sex marriage opponents and supporters spoke from the steps outside the U.S. Supreme Court about the rulings just announced.

Defenders of Proposition 8 argued that the Supreme Court’s denial of their standing left Proposition 8 as part of the law of California and that they were committed to defending it. Then a representative for Edie Windsor in U.S. v. Windsor spoke to reporters about the effect of overturning a provision of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

The Court invalidated a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that denied benefits to legally married gay couples.*Also, the Supreme Court cleared the way to resume same-sex marriages in California by denying standing to the defenders of Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California. close
