Hurray! On Tuesday June 10, 2014 the California Court of Appeal issued its decision in Marissa Rea v. Blue Shield of California. The Court held that the California Mental Health Parity Act requires Blue Shield to provide all medically necessary treatment for people suffering from severe mental illnesses, including anorexia and bulimia. I argued this case to the Court on March 18th and based on the Court's questioning was afraid they might take a different position than the Ninth Circuit did in Harlick. Fortunately, both the State and Federal Courts are now in agreement on this issue. It's still not smooth sailing though as I suspect Blue Shield will seek review of this decision by the California Supreme Court. Stay tuned.

FANTASTIC NEWS: In response to an earlier post that I had posted on my FB wall, regarding Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims' (D-Phila.) appearance on MSNBC's Hardball, Rep. Sims had just sent me a message, letting me know that he does not think Gov. Tom Corbett (R-PA) will appeal Tuesday's marriage equality ruling to the Third Circuit. If this turns out to be true, then Pennsylvania would become the 19th state to permit marriage equality. For those of you that are familiar with the litigation in both Oregon and Pennsylvania, Oregon differs from Pennsylvania because Gov. Kitzhaber (D-OR) and A.G. Ellen Rosenblum (D-OR) have openly acknowledged that they will not defend Oregon's Measure 36, nor have they, nor is it likely that Oregon state officials will appeal Monday's ruling to the Ninth Circuit & it is for that reason that Oregon has become the 18th state to permit marriage equality. If Rep. Sims is correct and Corbett does not appeal Tuesday's ruling, then Pennsylvania will have become the 19th state t ...

Oregon: This morning, NOM appealed the court's decision in Geiger v. Kitzhaber not to allow them to intervene and asked the Ninth Circuit to immediately stay proceedings in and/or the judgment of the court in that case while their appeal can be heard. It is clear that this is an attempt to delay marriage in Oregon, as both the plaintiffs and the state agree that the marriage ban is unconstitutional. The plaintiffs and the state have both filed initial responses asking the Ninth Circuit not to implement a temporary stay while they consider NOM's motion. They both indicate that they will file a full response later. The decision in the district court is expected at noon today PT (3pm ET). The motion: initial response: initial response:

Bad news, not unexpected. This morning the National Organization for Marriage filed an appeal with the Ninth Circuit, requesting a stay of today’s marriage equality decision. The Ninth Circuit is the court of appeals for federal cases in Oregon. NOM's appeal makes it more likely (although not certain) that the trial court judge will rule that marriages can't start right away.
Meanwhile, NOM has taken their hateful rhetoric to the Ninth Circuit, in a last ditch desperate attempt to stop marriage equality from taking effect in Oregon. They know, like we do, that if Judge Michael McShane rules in our favor, there will be nobody to appeal his ruling and that marriage equality will arrive in Oregon---for good!!!

The State Sabah, formerly North Borneo, was a territory given as a gift by the Sultan of Brunei to the Sultan of Sulu after the latter helped the Brunei Sultan suppressed an internal rebellion against him. Subsequently, the Sultan of Sulu LEASED North Borneo to a British North Borneo chartered company. Up to now, the heirs of the Sultan of Sulu are receiving a token rent from the Federation of Malaysia. When the British formed the Federation of Malaysia, the former engineered the annexation of North Borneo to the Federation of Malaysia and renamed it Sabah through a plebiscite that was rigged by the West Malaysians (who were mostly of Indian ancestry). The Kadasans and other natives of Sabah, as well as the Tausugs who were in Sabah at the time, voted against the plebiscite but the result of the latter was manipulated in favor of annexation. Understandably, the Malaysians tortured and twisted the meaning of the word “lease” (padjak) to “sell” and, since they have been in physical control of Sabah, ...
Subsequently, some of the Moro recruits for the infiltration and recovery of Sabah were brought to Corrigidor Island where, probably because of a confirmed information that some of the recruits were either traitors or Malaysian operatives, Martelino decided to kill all of the recruits who were mostly Tausugs. Unfortunately, a couple of them jumped into the cliff and survived. One of them was Jibin Arula, who later, because of the headlines made on his daring escape, became a councilor of his town. This was where Ninoy, a very ambitious young man who wanted to be President, came in and exposed what was then known as the “JABIDAH MASSACRE” in the halls of the Old Senate. The Ninoy expose screamed across the headlines and TV screens of a watching world, especially, in Malaysia. However, Malaysia --- then and still run by West Malaysians who are mostly of….. Looking by way of hindsight, the personal conflict and rivalry between Ferdinand Edralin Marcos, Sr. and Benigno Simeon Aquino, Sr. were the main c ...
