Majority of amicus filings ask court to strike down DOMA, Prop 8 — which may signal rulings wouldn’t trigger Roe v. Wade-like fallout

NOW’s amicus brief is discussed in an article by Lisa Keen of Keen News Services at the Dallas Voice: “When the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to tackle a major legal controversy, such as next week’s marriage equality cases, it typically invites advice from groups and legal experts. These people are not a party to the litigation itself but have an interest in the court’s decision. They are ‘friends of the court,’ offering a little friendly advice on how they think the court should rule.”
