Windsor v. The United States Of America

Filing 120

Letter addressed to Judge Barbara S. Jones, from Roberta A. Kaplan, dated 8/11/2011, re: challenging the constitutionality of Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act, or "DOMA." Finally, because the Court's rules require that memoranda of law should be no longer than 25 pages, and given the length of the briefs submitted by BLAG on August 1 (totalling approximately 70 pages), we would respectfully request permission to file a reply brief of up to 30 pages in connection with our motion for summary judgment and an opposition brief of up to 35 pages with respect to BLAG's motion to dismiss; although again, we will make every effort to file briefs under those limits.
