Another Circuit Strikes Down DOMA

On October 18th, the Second Circuit struck down DOMA in Windsor v. United States.  According to the majority, Section 3 of DOMA requires heightened scrutiny.  Combined with similar First Circuit precedent and the Ninth Circuit's decisions related to Proposition 8, it is now even more likely that the Supreme Court will take it upon itself to resolve the split.
