Thanks again to Kathleen for bringing us this. Yesterday, reply briefs were filed in the appeal of Judge Tauro’s decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act as unconstitutional in the companion cases of Gill v. Office of Personnel Management and Massachusetts v. Health and Human Services.
The first brief comes from the government, on behalf of the official defendants. The second is from the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group, which is defending the law.
