A Boston federal appellate court ruled Thursday that the federal law defining marriage as between a man and a woman is unconstitutional, handing gay-marriage proponents their biggest judicial victory to date and driving the issue closer to a Supreme Court showdown.
"How thrilling this is for us to know that the courts believe in protecting our rights to Social Security benefits, as with all the other married couples in the country," said Bette Jo Green, who with wife Jo Ann Whitehead are among the seven married couples and three gay widowers who are seeking a repeal of the law in the case of Gill v. Office of Personnel Management.
