Professor Franklin interviewed on overturn of DOMA

Vice Dean David Franklin appeared as a guest last night on PBS' Chicago Tonight. In an interview with host Carol Marin, David Franklin was invited to comment on the recent U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8.

Professor Franklin discussed US v. Windsor, the case for which DOMA Section 3 was declared unconstitutional, and said the tone of Justice Kennedy's ruling bodes well for the future of same-sex marriage in the United States.
