TX AG using part of DOMA that SCOTUS left intact in Windsor decision to deny gay couples family leave

When the Supreme Court invalidated the federal government's refusal to recognize gay marriages in the Windsor case, it left untouched the part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that allowed states to refuse to recognize gay marriages in other states.
     Texas' attorney general is now exploiting that loophole to deny legally married (in other states) Texas couples Family and Medical Leave benefits available to hetero couples.
