    “she did refer to some Supreme Court cases in which state determinations as to illegitimacy resulted in denial of federal benefits” … can you cite the page or the cases cited? I seem to be missing that reference. Thanks.

    My mistake, they were federal appellate cases, not US Supreme Court cases. It’s on pages 35 – 36 of the September 27, 2013, opinion by Judge Jacobson in Garden State Equality v. Dow. The cases are Cox v. Schweiker, 684 F.2d 310 (5th Cir. 1982); Handley v. Schweiker, 697 F.2d 999, 1003(11th Cir. 1983); and Daniels v. Sullivan, 979 F.2d 1516, 1520 (11th Cir. 1992).
