Victory for lesbian, years after her longtime partner’s death
(CNN) -- Edith Windsor, who filed the original case that could upend the Defense of Marriage Act, says just getting the case to this point is a kind of victory.\n\n"We've made a huge step forward and a huge difference in how people look at us," she said. "And so, it'll happen. Another year if not now."\n\nIt was the death of Windsor's life partner, Thea Clara Spyer, that led to the case.
