An argument to limit DOMA tailored for Chief Justice John Roberts
The liberal law blog Balkanization provides just such a thing in this post by Gerald M. Magliocca: The Defense of Marriage Act. Magliocca builds off of Chief Justice Roberts' approach in his opinion in the Obamacare healthcare mandate case. Anyone interested in the how the Supreme Court might rule if review of DOMA is accepted should give Magliocca's post a read -- Chief Justice Roberts is far from a predictable conservative vote on the Court now, particularly if he can be subjected to pressure from the media and academic elites.
