House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is calling on House Speaker John Boehner to reconsider intervening in another lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

DOMA is the Clinton-era law which bars federal agencies from recognizing the legal marriages of gay and lesbian couples.

On Tuesday, gay weekly Metro Weekly reported that the House Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG) filed a motion asking the court to grant it intervenor status in a lawsuit filed by the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) on behalf of LGBT service members, veterans and their spouses.

BLAG has intervened in 12 DOMA-related cases since President Barack Obama instructed the Department of Justice to no longer defend the law in court.

Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, criticized Boehner for the move.

“Without a vote or any specific authorization of the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG), Speaker Boehner is intervening in yet another case regarding the constitutionality not only of Section 3 of DOMA, but also the provision of Title 38 that cover military and veterans' benefits,” Hammill said in a statement.

“The men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces risk their lives for the country they love and do not deserve to face prejudice, especially from our nation’s elected leaders, when they return home. Speaker Boehner should grant the request of Leader Pelosi and Whip Hoyer for a vote of the BLAG on the expanded DOMA defense efforts regarding veterans' cases and allow the Committee on House Administration and the Ethics Committee to review any new contracts or additional expenditures of taxpayer funds.”
