BigLaw Attys Praise High Court's Gay Marriage Rulings

Law360, New York (June 26, 2013, 9:07 PM EDT) -- Life-changing, monumental, a historic day for human rights in America — BigLaw attorneys were effusive Wednesday in their praise for the U.S. Supreme Court's rulings in two gay marriage cases. 

They commended the court's decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act, calling it a crucial first step to ensuring gay married couples receive equal protection under the law and the myriad federal benefits that come with it. And they welcomed the practical impact of the court's avoidance of a broad ruling on the constitutionality of state gay-marriage bans, which will allow gay couples to marry in California.
