The largest bankruptcy court in the country has declared the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act a violation of the Constitution's equal protection guarantee.
The decision signed by 20 judges of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California is the first bankruptcy court to address the constitutionality of the law passed by Congress 15 years ago which prohibits federal government recognition of same-sex marriage. The decision came in a case in which a legally married gay couple was seeking to jointly file for bankruptcy.
The ruling by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Thomas A. Donovan in Los Angeles adds weight to decisions by a federal judge in Boston a year ago that the law amounts to discrimination against legally married gay couples and is therefore invalid.
In rejecting the federal trustee's motion to dismiss the bankruptcy petition of Gene Balas and Carlos Morales, Donovan said the court "discerns no valid, defensible governmental interest" in denying the couple's bankruptcy filing just because the petitioners are gay.
