|The House leadership on Monday moved to intervene in a suit brought by gay and lesbian servicemembers as they challenge DOMA's denial of spousal benefits. The intervention comes in the case of McLaughlin v. United States, where eight gay and lesbian servicemembers and their spouses are challenging that DOMA illegally discriminates against them on grounds of their gender and sexual orientation. The case also challenges three other federal statutes -- Titles 10, 32 and 38 -- that prevent the military from providing equal recognition, support and benefits for all military families.|
