– Also via Kathleen in Quick Hits, an update in McLaughlin v. Panetta, the challenge to DOMA as applied to the military:
Today, the federal defendants’ (“DOJ”) filed a motion asking for an extension of the deadlines to answer the plaintiffs’ complaint and respond to plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment until 21 days after the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals decides the Massachusetts DOMA cases (Massachusetts v.
