Attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams welcome Tobias Barrington Wolff, Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and Ken Klukowski, Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council, to discuss this controversial decision. Tobias and Ken discuss how this decision could affect current court cases, the impact on same sex-marriage and if this is the beginning of a DOMA repeal.

Gardner out of Newport Beach, CA, to discuss how a structured settlement comes into play when a marriage is dissolved. They discuss the advantages of a structured settlement for both sides of a divorce case, the tax advantages of a structured settlement and how marriage cases vary from state to state.
