DOMAThe Obama administration implored the Supreme Court on Friday to strike out a section from the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as unconstitutional discrimination.

"Section 3 of DOMA violates the fundamental constitutional guarantee of equal protection," the U.S. said in a brief.

DOMA, a 1996 federal law, defines marriage as between a man and a woman. Section 3 of the law permits state and federal authorities to deny typical benefits that same-sex couples enjoy, such as Social Security survivors' benefits.
