The United States of America
March 3, 2009
The US Government was sued today by 15 same-sex couples who were denied federal marriage benefits after legally marrying in Massachusetts. This is largely due to the Defense of Marriage Act which prohibits the federal government from extending Federal marriage rights to same-sex couples, despite the state’s ability to legalize such marriages.

The lawsuit is organized by the organization GLAD, who is also the organization who fought successfully to obtain the right of marriage for same-sex couples in 2003. More Info...
