Remaining defendants issue responses to Georgia class action same-sex marriage suit - LGBT Georgia | Gay Georgia | Gay Atlanta | LGBT Atlanta

thepoliticalfreakshow:

Attorneys for the two defendants in the federal class action lawsuit challenging Georgia’s 2004 same-sex marriage ban responded to the suit late Monday. Their responses follow Attorney General Sam Olens’ motion to dismiss the suit on behalf of State Registrar Debbie Aderhold earlier today.

The lawyer  for Clerk of Gwinnett County Probate Court Brook Davidson argue that the defendant has to follow the letter of the law in her duties. Davidson is defended by private attorney Frank E. Jenkins of Cartersville.

“If the laws of the State of Georgia are amended by the citizens of the State of Georgia, the Georgia General Assembly (or otherwise), or are found to be unconstitutional by a court of competent jurisdiction, Defendant Davidson will continue to abide by and administer the law as amended or interpreted.”

Later in the brief:

“Defendant Davidson further admits that she has a legal duty to abide by the laws of the State of Georgia, and is required by the Georgia Constitution and state statute to issue marriage licenses in accordance with existing Georgia state law, which excludes same-sex couples from marriage in the State of Georgia.”

Fulton Probate Judge Pinkie Toomer is a known LGBT ally and swore in lesbian Jane Morrison as Fulton Superior Court Judge in 2013. Judge Toomer is being defended in the case by Fulton County Judge Kaye Woodard Burwell.

The majority of Judge Toomer’s response is boilerplate and does not contain any constitutional bombshells, mostly stating that as a judicial officer she is required to comply with state laws and the Georgia Constitution and that this role also grants her “absolute judicial immunity” to such claims.

We’ll have more info and analysis on the briefs shortly.

The newest member of our bunny tribe is Spock’s lady friend and rescue bun Princess Bonnabell “Rose Tyler” Bubblegum. Bonnie Rose was abandoned in a park, which I do not understand: it’s her first day home and she came up and laid her head in my lap to get pets, and proceeded to nap there. She’s absolutely sweet and wonderful. #princessbubblegum #ussbunnyprise  #rescuebun #adopt #bunniesofinstagram #bunnybell #bonnierose (at Base Bella)

Possibly the most important and touching character development of that entire season

(via bmoreprincess)

511. At Luna’s wedding, the whole of the front row of seats was reserved for apparently no one. Harry went up to her at the end of the service. “Luna, who was meant to sit there?” Luna turned her glassy eyes on him. “Oh, they did sit there. In a spiritual way, I suppose,” she said. She pointed out the seats one by one. “Right. That one’s for my mother, those are for your parents because I think I would have liked them, that one is for Sirius, the one next to that is for Professor Lupin - they were friends, weren’t they? - and that’s for Tonks, then Fred Weasley, then Mad-Eye, then Professor Dumbledore, then Professor Snape. I hope they liked the wedding.” She smiled and waved into what was seemingly empty space, before prancing off into the crowds. Harry had never felt so touched before.
