As the Supreme Court struck down two barriers to gay marriage, supporters of equality outside the courthouse and elsewhere celebrated victory.
The court ruled the Defense of Marriage Act—a 1996 law that limited federal marriage benefits and effectively banned gay marriage at the federal level–unconstitutional and dismissed an attempt to uphold Proposition 8—a 2008 California provision banning same-sex marriage. The latter decision again legalizes gay marriage in California.
