Boehner’s lawyers trying to dismiss another DOMA case

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Paul Clement is getting into the ring with GLAD's Mary Bonauto. My money is on Bonauto.

From GLAD:

Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives submitted its response to the motion for summary judgment filed by Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) in its lawsuit Pedersen v. Office of Personnel Management, the multi-plaintiff challenge to Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) pending in the federal district court for the District of Connecticut. The House also filed a separate motion to dismiss the plaintiffs’ action.

GLAD issued the following statement in response to the various filings:
“We see no new arguments in this brief that can possibly justify DOMA’s discrimination against married same-sex couples,” said Mary L. Bonauto, GLAD’s Civil Rights Project Director and co-lead attorney in Pedersen. “We are intent on moving this case forward and ending the serious harms that our plaintiffs and other families around the country are enduring because of DOMA.”
GLAD must file a response to the House’s motion to dismiss by Sept. 14.
These briefs filed by Boehner's legal team are your tax dollars at work.
