BREAKING: DOMA Struck Down – Unconstitutional for states that already have same sex marriage

The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal law against gay marriage, in a sweeping decision that held the statute denied a fundamental right for gay Americans.

In a broad ruling, the 5-4 decision written by Justice Anthony Kennedy means that gay married couples cannot be treated differently than married couples for purposes of federal programs.

Justice Kennedy was joined by the four liberal members of the high court, with Chief Justice John Roberts and conservative Justices Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito dissenting.
