Edith Windsor: Case Against Defense of Marriage Act ‘Went Beautifully’
Windsor challenged the law after the federal government failed to recognize her marriage to her partner Thea Spyer after Spyer’s death in 2009. Though her marriage was recognized by the state of New York, she was still forced to pay a $363,000 federal estate tax bill because of her sexual orientation. Married opposite-sex couples are exempted from the tax.
Trying to remain realistic yet hopeful. We could use any kind of win on this case and the Prop 8 case.
