In U.S. v. Windsor, the United States Supreme Court held Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), unconstitutional under the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment thereby giving married same-sex couples federal recognition. 

Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Beth Allen and Portland Estate Planning attorney Beth Wolfsong will present a two-hour CLE addressing the implications of this landmark case, the federal executive response post-Windsor, and what this means for Oregon lawyers who practice in state and federal courts especially in the areas of family law, estate planning, civil rights, federal benefits, and/or taxation.

Following the seminar, please join the MBA and OGALLA, the LGBT Bar Association of Oregon, for a reception featuring hors d'oeuvres and a no-host bar.
