Amicus Briefs in Supreme Court Challenge to Federal DOMA

Oh, my how times have changed!  I was just gob-smacked to read, first the story of the Republican congressmen who signed on the amicus brief opposing the federal Defense of Marriage Act in Windsor v. U.S.. Then, a day later, there was another story about multiple major corporations signing a similar amicus brief in the same case, arguing that the DOMA forced them to treat employees unfairly. 

Very conveniently, the GLAD website pulls all these briefs and many other documents together in one handly place. Their website is a model for legal researchers, regardless of what side of an issue you may be one.  Thank you, GLAD!
