Gay Soldiers Sue Government for Equal Protection for Spouses
Gay people just got the right to serve openly in the military and  they’re already causing drama. At least it’s good drama this time. A  bunch of married gay soldiers have sued the government claiming the Defense of Marriage Act violates the constitution because it blocks the military from acknowledging their unions.
The couples, who are legally married in some states, argue their  spouses deserve the same rights and benefits as other military spouses.  Sounds fair to me! The suit was filed by the Servicemembers Legal  Defense Network, which used to fight “don’t ask, don’t tell,” cases.
