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…..

Another one? The Interior Department’s Takeover of the Timbisha Shoshone Government A previoulsy scheduled Secretarial election was called off because of the protests of the authentic Timbisha leaders, the members of the last legitimately elected Tribal Council. Read the Indian Country Today article about the cancellation of that election: Vote to Change Timbisha Constitution Cancelled, by Gale Courey Toensig, Nov . 20, 2013. The Timbisha Shoshone Tribe, based in Death Valley California, is among those Indian nations enduring an especially long and nasty fight in its dealings with the United States and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) – a 165-year long battle. The latest conflict involves the BIA’s installation of its own so-called government for the Tribe. This takeover of the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe’s government ignores the Tribe’s fundamental right of self-government, the inherent right of the Tribe to decide who is a member of the tribe and how the Tribe will be governed.

Yeah I mean who would ever want to use their constitution protected God given rights to protect themselves from all the crime in Cali. Who knew? - Rosa In the two months since the U.S. Ninth Court of Appeals struck down the “good cause” requirement in California, law enforcement officials have been “stunned” by the booming rate of concealed carry permit applications. According to The New York Times, in Orange County alone, almost 4,000 residents, eight times the usual number, have applied for a permit. The February 13 ruling by the Ninth Circuit is on appeal and has not been finalized, but Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens is pushing forward without the “good cause” requirement. As a result, there are so many applicants in her county that there is now “a 30-month wait to schedule the required in-person hearing to obtain a permit.” Unless and until the ruling is reversed, Hutchens says “it is the law of the land,” and she is hiring more part-time staff “to handle “the crush of . ...

Marcia Paul of DWT quoted in today's New York Times article on the Ninth Circuit's Order to YouTube
This Case May Make The Difference The first shoe has dropped in the complicated equal protection part of same-sex marriage litigation, and a good shoe it is. So far, same-sex marriage litigation has been confronted with the constitutional limitations of the Windsor decision and the cases before it on similar subjects authored by Justice Kennedy. The new case is GlaxoSmithKline v. Abbott Laboratories, A Ninth Circuit case decided January 21, 2014. A little background first. For many years, equal protection analysis has begun by a categorization of the class aggrieved. So, for example, race is subject to strict scrutiny, which is basically a legal way to say that such discrimination has no chance and will be struck down. On the other side of the analysis, there has been cases based on wealth or criminal record and these kinds of cases are analyzed using rational basis scrutiny, which means that if there is a rational basis for discrimination, that’s good enough and a legal way to say that the discrim ...

June 6, 2005 "California's [1996 medical marijuana] law conflicted with the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA), which banned possession of marijuana. After the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) seized doctor-prescribed marijuana from a patient's home, a group of medical marijuana users sued the DEA and U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft in federal district court. [Gonzalez v. Raich, docket no. 03-1454] The medical marijuana users argued the Controlled Substances Act - which Congress passed using its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce - exceeded Congress' commerce clause power. The district court ruled against the group. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed and ruled the CSA unconstitutional... the Ninth Circuit ruled using medical marijuana did not 'substantially affect' interstate commerce and therefore could not be regulated by Congress... In a 6-3 opinion delivered by Justice John Paul Stevens [on June 6, 2005], the Court held that the commerce clause gave Congress au ...

*** Jurors and Marriage Equality: The Common Legal Thread By Ari Ezra Waldman 22-01-2014 Source: Towleroad.com We all know that some of our best marriage equality news of late has come from unexpected places--namely, Utah and Oklahoma. Federal judges in even deeply conservative states are starting to realize the thinness of anti-equality arguments and the long arm of the Supreme Court's decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in Windsor v. United States. JuryThe narrative of marriage equality progress is bound up with a recent story out of the Ninth Circuit, in which a three-judge panel of the appellate court found that you cannot exclude a person from a jury simply because that person is *** More to the point, the court not only concluded that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation demanded heightened scrutiny, but cited Windsor in support!

January 20, 2014 4:00 AM A Strike at the Heart of Obamacare A case against IPAB is heard by the Ninth Circuit — and eventually by the Supreme Court? By Quin Hillyer Archive Latest RSS Send .

Tuesday’s decision in Halbig v. Sebelius, by D.C. federal-district-court judge Paul Friedman, shoots down (for now) one of several pending challenges to an Internal Revenue Service rule providing insurance-premium subsidies even to residents of states that do not establish insurance “exchanges” under Obamacare. Conservatives have put lots of stock in these challenges, because without the subsidies the entire Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) becomes far less attractive and therefore politically even less sustainable than it already is.
