Paul Clement Files Motion to Defend DOMA!


Last Friday Paul Clement filed a motion on behalf of the U.S. House of Representatives to intervene in a lawsuit against DOMA currently pending in Massachusetts (Gill v. Office of Personnel Management and Massachusetts v. United States). The motion argues that the House of Representatives has standing in the case and is entitled to intervene to defend DOMA on Equal Protection grounds.

The high quality of this motion is a good sign of what we have to expect from Paul Clement’s representation of Congress in the case.
