Who Filed The DOMA Brief?

More

W Scott Simpson, a Bush administration holdover. You can read a previous decision of his here (PDF) from 2008. So it becomes clearer. The harsh rhetoric, the gratuitous attacks on our relationships ... they were written by someone who was given an award by Alberto Gonzales for his defense of the Partial Birth Abortion Act. 

So who signed off on this brief? Who is responsible for this mess? Or are gays that low a priority for DOJ?
