1996: Winter 2015

Here’s a quick update on Chris Laborde and her case–Hamby et al. v. Parnell et al. With the new Governor (Walker) in office, the state of Alaska was getting ready to file an appeal to stay and/or allow more time to file an appeal until the Supreme Court decides. That Supreme Court hearing planned to be held in April with a decision in June 2015. The plaintiffs (Chris and her partner Susan) are opposing that stay. Chris and Susan are one of five couples suing the State of Alaska to recognize their marriage. Chris can be reached at CDLaborde@gmail.com. As for me, I moved back to Maryland from California in February. I am so very happy to be home enjoying the snow and I am looking forward to my new adventures! Thanks for the updates – keep them coming! That is the news for now…
