George Wallace move over: Alabama Supreme Court tells federal judges to stuff it

Posted By on Tue, Mar 3, 2015 at 8:18 PM

Extraordinary times. With only one dissent, the Alabama Supreme Court in a highly irregular proceeding has issued a 150-page order directing Alabama court officials not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, no matter what a federal court has ruled.

Really.

This is a bad moment to be giving the Arkansas Supreme Court ideas.
