House of Representatives Moves to Intervene in Gill and Massachusetts

On the heels of the Justice Department’s decision not to defend DOMA in court, the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG) of the U.S House of Representatives files a motion with the First Circuit seeking to intervene in the case in defense of DOMA.  In addition, BLAG argues that it has standing to pursue the appeal in federal court.  BLAG is composed of the House’s Democratic and Republican leadership, and is responsible for overseeing the actions of the House Office of General Counsel.  Regarding DOMA, BLAG votes on party lines 3-2 to defend the law.
