Supreme Court Strikes Down DOMA: Dorf Responds

Michael C. Dorf, Robert S. Stevens Professor of Law, Says:
If Bill Clinton was "the first Black president," Anthony Kennedy has now firmly secured his place in history as "the first gay Justice." As the author of Romer v. Evans, Lawrence v. Texas and now United States v. Windsor, Justice Kennedy makes clear that he not only accepts, but welcomes the task of writing majestic opinions affirming the dignity of gay persons and couples.
