Simply on a personal level, Edie Windsor’s lawsuit (read about it at Gay Couples to Sue Over Defense of Marriage Act – NYTimes.com) is egregiously just. But it’s important, as well, on a political level. If Ms. Windsor and the ACLU win, this lawsuit can do what I keep pumping as a reason to sue: change the law. This case can cause the repulsive and unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act to be repealed as unconstitutional.
I’ve tried to link to the ACLU’s page on this lawsuit but have had no luck. Sorry.
