Krauthammer’s Take: On DOMA, Court Could Easily Say ‘No Standing’


Based on today’s oral arguments in the Supreme Court on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, Charles Krauthammer said that the court could “easily rule that they have no standing, the issue is not before the court properly.” 

DOMA, he argued, should be overturned in Congress. “Then you won’t have people saying, ‘Well, it was done by the nine robed eminences on the court unilaterally and not a matter of dictat, but it will be a matter of democratically resolving the issue, that’s the way we ought to go, and I think Kennedy has at least the opportunity to end up pursuing that.
