The Court rejected several procedural arguments before getting to the meat of the decision. The Court first found that homosexuality is a suspect classification, so that laws disadvantaging homosexuals must survive heightened scrutiny. In other words, their must be a substantial relationship between the law's rationale and its effect on the suspect classification. The Court then reviewed the various rationales presented by Congress, and rejected them. Thus, the Court found DOMA to violate the equal protection clause.
