 Landmark ruling would force U.S. to recognize 'gay marriage'


In a landmark decision that could force the federal government to recognize "gay marriage," a U.S. district judge Thursday overturned part of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, ruling that the government cannot constitutionally distinguish between traditional marriage and same-sex "marriage."

Judge Joseph L. Tauro's ruling in a pair of lawsuits invalidates Section 3 of the law, which says that for the purpose of federal law, marriage "means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife."
