The High Court ruled DOMA is unconstituional.  That means people in same sex marriages in states that allow it -- are eligible for benefits.

 

And justices allowed a lower court ruling to stand that allows same sex marraige in California.

 

The DOMA case is a much more decisive ruling.

 

OSU Cascades Professor Jim Foster says the high court ruling DOMA is unconstitutional has ramifications for people across the U.S. who are in same sex marriages.

 

"The case was brought by a veteran that was denied benefits because of a same sex marriage.  It will have important fiscal consequences for governmetnal benefits and access to them."

 

This ruling means people in same sex marriages in states that allow it -- will be eligible for benefits.

 

The California Proposition 8 cases wasn't as clear cut.  The justices didn't rule on the merits of the case --but sent it back to the state saying the lower court ruling allowing same sex marriage in California will stand.
