California's Gay Marriage Case: Supreme Court Or Bust!!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspiration

We're almost there!!

In February, the Ninth Circuit ruled that Californian Prop 8 was unconstitutional. So supporters of the gay-marriage-banning bill sought to have a larger panel of judges rehear their arguments.

But it's official. They're just not havin' it. The Ninth Circuit has declined to rehear arguments over the statewide ban on gay marriage.

That being said, the case is gearing up for it's trip to the Supreme Court, where the final gavel could bang equality once and for all!!!

If the Court decides the case is worth hearing, a decision will come by

Pink Floyd Beats EMI Again!

Another win!

Pink Floyd has successfully beaten their record company, EMI, in the courts over whether or not their music can be sold individually by track on-line!

As we've reported, the band has argued that a clause in their contract should prevent EMI for selling their songs separately, as it was signed in 1999, before digital downloads took off.

Their lawyer, Robert Howe, argues that his clients want to "know where they stand as a matter of contract" and is concerned that EMI's "entitlement to sell individual tracks, or indeed any tracks, otherwise than in the original configuration of the Pink Floyd albums" and that they're "wrongly exploiting" the group.

After they originally won their case in March, EMI appealed the decision, and now, the Court of Appeal has once again shut them down!

Ouch!

Sorry guys! If it's in their contract - you can't do it!

Wesley Snipes Files Appeal To The Supreme Court

Filed under: Legal MattersWesley Snipes

Even in prison, Wesley Snipes is making sure his voice gets heard!

Attorneys for the actor have filed a new appeal, asking the court to let him out of prison so that he can take his case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Snipes is asking the Court of Appeals to overturn their decision that ordered him to jail last week. He believes he deserves a new trial because there was an alleged juror bias during his tax evasion case.

Seems pretty ballsy! But, you can't blame him for wanting to fight!

Thoughts??
