Linda Ellis, executive director of The Phillip Rush Center, from left, Rush Center coordinator Amy Burke and Wes Sanders, field organizer and development associate for Georgia Equality, react to the Supreme Court's ruling of the Defense of Marriage ActWednesday, June 26, 2013, in Atlanta. The justices issued two 5-4 rulings in their final session of the term. One decision wiped away part of a federal anti-gay marriage law that has kept legally married same-sex couples from receiving tax, health and pension benefits. The other was a technical legal ruling that said nothing at all about same-sex marriage, but left in place a trial court's declaration that California's Proposition 8 is unconstitutional.
