Wow! Didn’t see this coming, either!

“The Justice Department will not defend the Defense Department and Department of Veterans Affairs in a lawsuit filed last year intended to extend rights and benefits to married same-sex couples in the military.”

Attorney General Eric Holder said “he determined that DOMA provisions ‘as applied to same-sex couples who are legally married under state law, violate the equal protection component of the Fifth Amendment [of the Constitution].’”

(All of a sudden Justice quotes state law?)
