Part of DOMA declared unconstitutional via 10th Amendment

The Feds can’t withhold swag from fags who are married, on the basis of considering them not-married, because marriage is a state responsibility. I hate that we’re talking about a right to a ladleful from the cannibal pot, here, but the part of the decision based on the 10th Amendment is spot-on, and a breath of fresh air. I’d feel better about it if I were convinced that Judge Joseph actually believes in the 10th, as opposed to finding it a convenient excuse. But I’ll take my victories where I can. Decision is here.
