Nearly 300 US companies filed a brief on behalf of the New York woman whose challenge of DOMA has reached the Supreme Court. Why support gay marriage? For one, it's just good business.
The court says the measure only takes away the term 'marriage' – not a gay couple's legal rights. The ruling also preserves 18,000 marriages that took place before the ban.
The court must rule in 90 days on the legality of Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriage.
