The Congress Do Us Part: The Marriage Protection Act, Federal Court-Stripping, and Same-Sex Marriage

J. Spencer Jenkins

Article PDF:

This Note will argue that the Marriage Protection Act is antithetical to the original understanding of Congress’s power over the federal courts’ jurisdiction and that it undermines the Supreme Court’s precedent of judicial review. Further, this Note will argue that  same-sex couples cannot be completely deprived of a remedy in the federal courts because the issue of same-sex marriage implicates several constitutional protections, and the refusal to provide a proper forum in which to address their grievances denies samesex couples the advantages of those protections.
