A. G. Schneiderman Defends Gay Marriage

     New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is calling on the US Supreme Court to strike down the Federal Defense of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8. Last month, Schneiderman led a coalition of more than a dozen states in filing a friend-of-the-court brief, arguing that DOMA violates the right of same-sex couples to have equal protection under the Constitution.

     In a statement, the attorney general says his office will work everyday to fight discrimination and defend the fundamental guarantee of equal protection under law for all New Yorkers.
