A leading legal organization is calling for sanctions against U.S. Department of Justice attorneys who now oppose the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

The Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) launched a campaign to hold over 30 U.S. Department of Justice attorneys accountable for filing papers against DOMA after initially supporting the measure. Complaints are being filed in ten jurisdictions, including California, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Illinois.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)PJI President Brad Dacus contends it is wrong for lawyers to abandon their clients and switch sides.

"We at the Pacific Justice Institute are standing up to all those attorneys working for the U.S. Department of Justice that have decided not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act and instead have switched sides and are now opposing the Defense of Marriage Act," Dacus says. "This is a clear breach of their fundamental professional duties as lawyers, and we are working to encourage people to file complaints with their state bars, where every citizen who wants to can file a complaint with the state bar associations to challenge these U.S. Department of Justice attorneys who are not doing their job and instead are opposing 'we the people' and the federal statutes protecting the Defense of Marriage Act."

The PJI president urges all citizens to visit NoWayDOJ.com to file complaints against the attorneys who are responsible for unethical conduct.
