Question description

In 2013, the Supreme Court struck down as unconstitutional the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which was passed by Congress. Would this be an example of checks and balances between the legislative and judicial branches? Should the U.S. Supreme Court, a nonelected body, have the power to make such decisions on acts passed by the legislative body, who are elected by the people?
