Article on Federalism Challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act

“The way is long and the shrine is far”

The Defense of Marriage Act and Uncategorical Federalism is an article I have written that is forthcoming this March in volume 19 of the William and Mary Bill of Rights Journal (2011).  It addresses Tenth Amendment/federalism challenges to Section 3 of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, which defines “marriage” for most federal law purposes as only a union of one man and one woman.  It is fairly technical, but anyone interested can check it out on the Social Sciences Research Network here.
