Grossman Statement on the Supreme Court’s Decision on DOMA

Treasurer Steven Grossman issued the following statement in response to today’s Supreme Court decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA):

“Today's decision on DOMA reaffirms the fundamental principle of our democracy: ‘Equal justice under law,’ an inscription which is carved on the front of the Supreme Court. Barbara and I are particularly proud that Massachusetts has played such a pioneering role in the ongoing struggle for marriage equality, the most significant civil rights battle of our time.”
