quote: Maybe the 9-0 decision was because Obama told his Federal attorneys, that were defending the governments prior positions, to go ahead and lose this one. A similar situation arose when Obama had to defend DOMA. Because DOMA was a federal law the Obama administration legally had to defend it. The federal 'effort' was pretty weak because they didn't really support the law. I imagine the same thing happened here.
