On June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court of the United States held, in United States v. Windsor (Docket No. 12-307), that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutionally restricts the federal interpretation of “marriage” and “spouse” to apply only to heterosexual unions–depriving persons of equal liberty under the Fifth Amendment. The Robert Crown Law Library at Stanford Law School has collected materials related to the Court’s opinion and the events in the Windsor case.
