Wednesday Gavel Grab Briefs

In these other dispatches about fair and impartial courts:

  • As some analysts predicted, the six Supreme Court justices who attended President Obama’s State of the Union address (see Gavel Grab) were Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, Anthony Kennedy and Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., the Los Angeles Times reported.
  • Same-sex couples argued for the same rights as wedded people during legal proceedings before a state judge in Helena, Montana, according to a Billings Gazette article.
  • Sabrina Shizue McKenna, a veteran state judge, was nominated by Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie to the state Supreme Court. If confirmed, she would be Hawaii’s first openly gay member of that court, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported.
