Google reacted quickly to this morning's historic ruling by the Supreme Court, that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  In a 5-4 decision, the court decided that the federal law, which defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman, was an unconstitutional violation of the Fifth Amendment.
