Trillium Statement on the U.S. Supreme Court Decision Striking Down DOMA
“Today’s Supreme Court decision striking down DOMA is a win for the American people. Millions of loving couples will no longer be denied Social Security, medical benefits and other federal protections,” said Matthew W. Patsky, CEO of Trillium Asset Management. “DOMA, which forced employers to treat employees with same-sex spouses as separate and unequal to their colleagues, also imposed unnecessary costs on businesses and we are pleased to see it overturned.”
Trillium Asset Management is proud to be among 70 employers listed on an amicus brief in support of Gill v. Office of Personnel Management, a 2012 challenge to DOMA.
