High court will rule on laws protecting union of one man, one woman

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court Friday agreed to review the constitutionality of the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California’s marriage amendment.

Perry. Alliance Defending Freedom has also filed friend-of-the-court briefs in defense of the federal Defense of Marriage Act in cases across the country.
