A federal appeals court has struck down the Defense of Marriage Act as unconstitutional.
That law defines marriage as involving a man, and a woman.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued its ruling this morning, upholding a lower court's ruling that the 1996 law is unconstitutional.
The three–judge panel says the law violates equal protection. The issue is expected to be decided by the Supreme Court.
