Queerty – Facebook Is Filing Marriage-Equality Amicus Brief With Supreme Court

Facebook Is Filing Marriage-Equality Amicus Brief With Supreme Court

A note on LGBTQ@Facebook reveals that the social-media giant will be filing a brief this week in opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8, both of which are before the Supreme Court in March:

This week, Facebook is proudly joining hundreds of businesses in submitting briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court supporting same-sex marriage. The briefs explain to the Court how the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8 discriminate against employees in same-sex marriages and create undue burdens on companies and employees.
We’ll post links to both filings on the LGBTQ@Facebook page when they are available.
That’s a status update we can get behind!
