And the saga continues…

As we reported last month, a federal judge overturned Brendan Dassey's conviction claiming his coerced confession violated his Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment rights. Because of this, the 26-year-old will leave jail in November.

As seen on Making A Murderer, the Wisconsin-native — along with uncle Steven Avery — were charged with the rape and murder of Teresa Haibach.

However, the Netflix star just faced another obstacle in his journey to freedom.

On Friday, the state of Wisconsin is appealing Dassey's overturned conviction. According to Attorney General Brad Schimel:

"We believe the magistrate judge's decision that Brendan Dassey's confession was coerced by investigators, and that no reasonable court could have concluded otherwise, is wrong on the facts and wrong on the law… Two state courts carefully examined the evidence and properly concluded that Brendan Dassey's confession to sexually assaulting and murdering Teresa Halbach with his uncle, Steven Avery, was voluntary, and the investigators did not use constitutionally impermissible tactics."

Regardless of whether he is truly guilty or not, Brendan is going to face another uphill battle.

Texas' Same Sex Marriage Ban STRUCK DOWN! Federal Judge Rules It Unconstitutional!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikLGBT

texas gay same sex marriage ban unconstitutional federal judge ruling

Texas is unfortunately one of many states with a same sex marriage ban. But thanks to a decision by Federal Judge Orlando Garcia, it may not be much longer.

His Honor ruled on Wednesday that the law is unconstitutional, mostly because it served no "legitimate governmental purpose."

That's another way of saying it's a bunch of malarky! Srsly, how does people who love each other getting the same benefits as you do affect you?

Justice may be blind, but today at least it isn't dumb! But don't book that Texas dude ranch for your nuptials just yet.

The ruling won't go into effect immediately, and during the lengthy appeals process, the law will remain on the books.

Sadly, the debate will rage on deep in the heart of Texas.

Judge Rules That Same-Sex Marriages Can Start Happening Immediately In Chicago! Windy City For The Win!

gay marriage nj

It's official! Start popping that champagne, Chicagoans!

A federal judge just ruled that same-sex couples can start getting married immediately in the Chicago area, pushing it forward from the June 1st date mandated in the Illinois bill that legalized same-sex marriage in the state.

Because the bill passed by only one vote in November, it didn't have the requisite yeas to put it into effect before June 1st.

However, after the ACLU and Lambda Legal won a lawsuit in December, which granted same-sex couples where one of the partners had a terminal illness the right to marry, they sought to have all gay couples the right to marry ASAP in Cook County, which they just won!

U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman had this to say about the momentous decision:
