Written by scott on September 14th, 2013

Washington DC LegislatureD.C.’s Superior Court is adding another room to accommodate the increase in weddings since the US Supreme Court overturned Section 3 of DOMA.

Edge Boston reports:

The D.C. Superior Court says its second ceremony room will open Monday. The clerk of the court, Duane Delaney, said in a statement that marriage license applications have significantly increased since the Supreme Court’s ruling in the case U.S. v. Windsor in June. The decision struck down a law denying federal benefits to legally married same-sex couples. “We recently experienced a significant increase in our workload, it seems as a result of the US Supreme Court’s decision in US v. Windsor. The last two months we have seen a doubling in the usual number of marriage license applications, with more than 100 customers served each day,” Delaney said in a statement.
