Same-Sex Marriage Cases

The Supreme Court this morning released its opinions in the two same-sex marriage cases:

United States v. Windsor. Holding 5-4 (Kennedy, J.) that section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act violates equal protection under the 5th Amendment and accordingly is unconstitutional.

Hollingsworth v. Perry. Holding 5-4 (Roberts, C.J.) that the Proposition 8 proponents lacked standing and vacating the decision of the 9th Circuit.
