This just in … GLAD, the legal team representing the Plaintiffs in the Pedersen v. Office of Personnel Management case challenging section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) has scored another victory! According to their media advisory, Judge Vanessa L. Bryant of the United State District Court, District of Connecticut today issued a decision to grant the Plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment and denying the Defendant’s motion to dismiss.
“[Section 3 of DOMA] therefore violates the equal protection principles incorporated in the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” wrote Judge Bryant.

One case at a time, folks. One case at a time.
