The Alaska Supreme Court: Supreme Judges or Supreme Legislators?MoreJudges of the Alaska Supreme Court have repeatedly shocked and outraged Alaskans with rulings that haveÂ negated the majority voice of the Alaska Legislature and the will of the people. The Alaska Supreme Court: Supreme Judges or Supreme Legislators? is a case study of the particular state supreme court case, The Alaska Civil Liberties Union et al. vs. the State of Alaska and the Municipality of Anchorage, which mandated that those government employer-sponsored benefits originally allocated only to dependents of married persons now be provided equally to persons in same-sex domestic relationships. This ruling was made in spite of various attempts by the Alaska legislature and by the people in amending both Alaska Statute and the Alaska Constitution. How much further will the Alaska Supreme Court go in eroding our true form of governmental democracy--the republic? In other words, how many more laws and state constitutional amendments will the Alaska Supreme Court overrule, be itÂ on this particular subject or on any other? The Alaska Supreme Court: Supreme Judge or Supreme Legislature? provides simple, common-sense arguments and practical actions theÂ layman mayÂ undertakeÂ to initiate major reformations in the judicial branch of our state government, andÂ to restore the power of law and logic to the people of Alaska--you!
