Dan Foley just called me: a lower court in Alaska has decided that Alaska must present compelling state interest arguments to justify continuing to discriminate by denying marriage licenses to same-gender couples.
This is what Hawaii's Supreme Court ordered for Hawaii back in 1993, and those arguments were attempted by the State in September 1996 -- and totally rejected by Judge Kevin Chang in Honolulu Circuit Court in December 1996.
The news from Hawaii: not a peep out of our own Supreme Court
as to when they will rule on the state's appeal to them of Judge Kevin
