Edie Windsor vs DOMA

I just finished watching the documentary "Edie and Thea: A Very Long Engagement" on the Sundance channel, and found out that Edie is suing the federal government over DOMA. Edie was charged a large estate tax upon her wife's death because the feds don't recognize their same-sex marriage. Thea and Edie were legally married ijn Canada in 2007 after over 40 years together. Thea died in 2009, leaving her estate to her wife, Edie. The federal government subsequently charged Edie over 300 grand in estate taxes, which wouldn't have been done if, as Edie says, Thea had been a Theo.

You go Edie!
