I knew this would happen...
U.S. District Judge David O. Carter ruled the case — the first of several pending challenges to the federal Defense of Marriage Act — must be refiled in federal court.
Carter said the suit had been improperly filed in state court before it was transferred to his jurisdiction. As a result, the judge said, he would not entertain arguments on its merits, at least not yet. "There is no point for us to go down the line of decision-making and waste time," he said during the hearing in Santa Ana.
Okay, so what does this mean? Hopefully they will file it properly or wait to see how Obama's folks will handle it.
