Plaintiffs seek to overturn Oklahoma marriage amendment


Posted: 7/31/13

This is somewhat unclear, but apparently plaintiffs are seeking to have the Oklahoma marriage amendment overturned based on the DOMA ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court which declared section 3 of DOMA unconstitutional ref.  

Section 3 had to do with the definition of marriage for federal purposes only.  Section 1 and 2 are still in effect and protect the definition from marriage from state to state so that one state does not have to adhere to a different state's definition of marriage.

Either way, this case bears watching.  U.S. Senior District Judge Terence Kern gave the defense until Aug 23, 2013 for the defense to file a response to the plaintiffs' Monday filing and until Aug. 16, 2013 to respond to the July 26, 2013 pleading.
