DOMA Subject of CTS Forum

Affinity Student Group and CTS welcomes Don Sherfick, an attorney affiliated with Indiana Action Equality, on Tuesday, October 8, from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. in room 122, CTS.

Discussion will center on how the Supreme Courts recent decision of the unconstitutionality of Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) will impact the Indiana community. This United States federal law, enacted September 21, 1996, allows states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages granted under the laws of other states. Under Section 3 of the Act was ruled unconstitutional in 2013, DOMA, in conjunction with other statues, had also effectively barred same-sex married couples from being recognized as spouses for purposes of federal laws, or receiving federal marriage benefits.
