DOMA violates Fifth Amendment

Windsor (Kennedy for 5; Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, Alito dissent). Waiting on Hollingsworth, although language from the Roberts dissent in Windsor indicates that case dismissed on standing grounds.

Update: Yep--Petitioners in Hollingsworth lacked standing to appeal the district court decision. Roberts for five; Kennedy dissents, joined by Thomas, Alito, and Sotomayor.

More later.
