Washington, D.C.—Brian Brown, President of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) released the following statement today in response to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) violates the Constitution's equal protection clause:

"This is yet another example of judicial activism and elite judges imposing their views on the American people, and further demonstrates why it is imperative for the U.S. Supreme Court to grant review in the currently pending DOMA cases as well as to the Proposition 8 case. The American people are entitled to a definitive ruling in support of marriage as the union of one man and one woman, as 32 states have determined through popular vote."
