Defense of Marriage Act Ruled Unconstitutional

Defense of Marriage Act Ruled Unconstitutional

By Kevin Fayle on February 23, 2012 1:58 PM
A federal judge in San Francisco has found that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) violated the rights of a federal employee who was denied the opportunity to enroll her wife in the health benefits program available to opposite spouses of federal judiciary employees. DOMA prohibits the recognition of same-sex marriages for purposes of federal benefits. The judg ein the case determined that DOMA violated the plaintiff’s right to equal protection under the Fifth Amendment by failing to recognize her lawful marriage to a same-sex spouse. The Obama Administration has already announced that it considers DOMA discriminatory and has opted not to enforce it.

Review: TranscriptPad — review and manage depositions on your iPad – iPhone J.D.

Jeff Richardson:  As a litigator, I read a lot of depositions, and I love the ability to review them on my iPad.  In the past, I have typically created a searchable PDF version of the deposition transcript and then read the transcripts in the GoodReader app, using the standard PDF highlight feature to mark significant text.  I’d store all of the depositions in a folder in GoodReader so I could pull them up in the future.  However, Lit Software LLC has just introduced a new $50 iPad app called TranscriptPad, an app dedicated to the task of reviewing depositions.  This is the same company that created TrialPad, a powerful trial presentation app for the iPad.  The developer, Ian O’Flaherty, sent me a free copy of the app to review, and so far I am very impressed.  The app offers many powerful features, and I think that this will be the tool I will use going forward for reviewing depositions.
