ABSTRACT
2 The Supreme Court heard arguments over the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which bars federal recognition of same-sex marriages. The 4 liberal justices seemed ready to strike DOMA. Justice Anthony Kennedy suggested DOMA may violate state rights. Conservative justices criticized the Obama administration for arguing against a U.S. law while simultaneously enforcing it.
