Alternately, how can he strike down California marriage law based on the 14th amendment without also striking down the Defense of Marriage Act?

Not only this, but the judge in the first circuit struck down the DOMA on the grounds that the states had the right to decide their own marriage laws.

There’s a contradiction here (the judges are using whatever they have to to strike down whatever they want to) that will need to be reconciled.
