MA sues Federal Government over DOMA

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Boston, argues the act "constitutes an overreaching and discriminatory federal law." It says the approximately 16,000 same-sex couples who have married in Massachusetts since the state began performing gay marriages in 2004 are being unfairly denied federal benefits given to heterosexual couples.

This is fantastic news. Let's hope the Homophobama Administration doesn't stomp this one into the ground like they did the last one.
