Harking back to days of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, and the Reformation, Kentucky judge rejects divorce petition --Judge rejects divorce case, cites gay marriage ruling | 03 Sept 2015 | A Tennessee couple who filed for divorce about a year ago are stuck with each other. Hamilton County's chancellor denied their petition, citing the U.S. Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling. The decision was issued by Jeffrey Atherton, who essentially said the June Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage across the country has destroyed the court's ability to grant divorces. He added the Supreme Court should issue a ruling on when a marriage is no longer a marriage — otherwise, he said, state courts won't be able to address marriage and divorce cases properly.

September 4, 2015 by legitgov

37 senators support Iran nuclear deal | 03 Sept 2015 | Three more Democratic senators announced their support Thursday for the Iran nuclear agreement, increasing the possibility the deal's supporters may be able to block a Senate vote on a resolution disapproving of the pact.

President Obama needed 34 to prevent the Senate from overriding his veto of any resolution of disapproval opposing the Iran deal. He had secured that number by Wednesday.

France says wing part found on Reunion island definitely from MH370 | 03 Sept 2015 | The piece of wing found on the shore of Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean has been formally identified as part of the wreckage of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, the Paris prosecutor said on Thursday. The part, known as a flaperon, was found on the shore of the French-governed island on July 29 and Malaysian authorities have said paint color and maintenance-record matches proved it came from the missing Boeing 777 aircraft. The French prosecutor, who had until Thursday's statement been more cautious on its provenance, said a technician from Airbus Defense and Space (ADS-SAU) in Spain, which had made the part for Boeing, had formally identified one of three numbers found on the flaperon as being the serial number of the MH370 Boeing 777.

September 3, 2015 by legitgov

With flourish, Trump rejects independent bid if he loses GOP nomination | 03 Sept 2015 | With his typical showmanship...Donald Trump promised Thursday to forgo an independent bid for the White House if he loses his quest for the Republican nomination, a move that was aimed at easing worries of the party establishment but may only serve to boost his unpredictable, rogue campaign. Standing in the opulent and packed lobby of his Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan, Trump held up the document -- which was mistakenly dated Aug. 3 instead of Sept. 3. -- at a midday news conference and declared he was "pledging allegiance to the Republican Party and the conservative principles for which it stands." Republican Party officials circulated the 70-word pledge to all 17 GOP candidates this week, but the effort was aimed squarely at the one leading the pack in most polls.

First hearing in Freddie Gray case begins in Baltimore | 02 Sept 2015 | The first circuit court hearing for six officers charged in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray began Wednesday morning, drawing protesters and national media back to Baltimore.

The hearings and the demonstrations that come with it could also be a test for the city that has been recovering from riots that ignited the day of Gray’s funeral in April.

September 2, 2015 by legitgov

Senate Dems Have Votes to Hand Obama Victory on Iran Deal | 02 Sept 2015 | Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland became the crucial 34th vote in favor the Iran nuclear deal Wednesday, ensuring a landmark victory for President Barack Obama over ferocious opposition from Republicans and the government of Israel. Mikulski's backing gives supporters the margin they need to uphold an expected Obama veto of a congressional resolution of disapproval that Republicans hope to pass later this month. And it spells failure for opponents of the international agreement who sought to foil it by turning Congress against it. Leading that effort were Israel and its allies [AIPAC trolls] in the U.S., who failed to get traction after spending millions of dollars trying.
