The Los Angeles Times Editorial Board urges the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case against the anti-gay Proposition 8 and the cases against the so-called "Defense of Marriage" Act (DOMA), saying, "The Supreme Court should rule clearly that Proposition 8 and other bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional...Obviously, DOMA violates the equal protection of the law, and the court should so rule. But it also should make clear that same-sex couples have a right to marry even in states that haven't passed legislation to that effect."
