Sotomayor & Gay Civil Rights...?? (Audio)

By Charlotte Robinson, August 10, 2009
Audio Interview w/ Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin on LGBT Civil
Rights & the Obama administration @OUTTAKE VOICES™
In this exclusive audio excerpt we asked Lee Swislow, Executive Director of the Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, (GLAD) what she thought about the Supreme Court appointment of Sonia Maria Sotomayor.

In March 2009, GLAD filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging
the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, DOMA that will most likely be headed to the Supreme Court. Hear More...:)
Recently Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government seeking federal marriage benefits for over 16,000 gay & lesbian couples who have legally married in Massachusetts since 2004. Both cases are being heard before the same federal judge. When asked if the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) will go before the Supreme Court Swislow said, “I certainly expect that ultimately this case will wind up in front of the Supreme Court. It’s a case of significant national importance.” Hear full interview: @ OUTTAKE VOICES™
