LGBT Community Rejoice! Supreme Court Strikes Down Defense of Marriage Act and Prop 8

The Court also cleared the way for same-sex marriage in California, ruling that opponents of same-sex marriage did not have standing to appeal a lower court ruling that overturned Proposition 8.

The New York Times reports that the ruling appears to remove legal obstacles to same-sex couples marrying in the state, but the court did not issue a broad ruling likely to affect other states.
