Stephen Hill, gay soldier booed at GOP debate, is part of new lawsuit challenging DOMA

Who knew?  That little factoid was buried in SLDN’s press release yesterday.  I had to go to the Huffington Post to find out.  It’s only the most newsworthy part of the entire story, by far.  More from HuffPo:

Josh Snyder, the husband of the gay soldier booed at a September Republican presidential debate, appeared on MSNBC Thursday to discuss the incident and the lawsuit he is a plaintiff in seeking to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act.

Snyder is a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed by the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network seeking to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, which bans the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages. The suit also seeks to overturn Titles 10, 32, 38 of the U.S. code, which prevent gay spouses from getting the same benefits as heterosexual couples.
