The Enterprise’s front-page headline on Wednesday, “Court ends DOMA, Prop. 8,” is incorrect and misleading,
Only Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was invalidated for technical reasons. I believe that the rest of DOMA is still federal law. The Supreme Court even strengthened Section 2 of DOMA.
The court did not strike down Prop. 8, Rather the court yielded a narrow procedural ruling. The appellate court decision was vacated and the case was sent back to the trial court. I believe that Prop. 8 is still the law in California.
