Vanity Plates, the First Amendment, and a Judge on the Rise

    Andrew Cohen writes at Politics Daily: “Judge Livingston then delivered the coup de grace. “The infirmities in Vermont’s application of its own statute are amply demonstrated by the case at bar. Byrne applied for the plate JN36TN, which the state refused to issue because Byrne’s supplied meaning indicated his intent to refer to the biblical passage John 3:16. However, as Byrne argues, and the record supports, Vermont would have approved that very same combination had Byrne supplied a secular meaning for it – e.g., `[M]y name is John, I am 36, [and] I was born in Tennessee.’”

    Associated Press: “A decade after Vermont became the first state to recognize same-sex couples, it is one of five states that have expanded beyond civil unions to offer full-fledged same-sex marriage. But it’s still a hotly debated issue in many parts of the country. Voters in California and Maine overturned same-sex marriage, and 29 states have passed laws or constitutional amendments against it.”

    Associated Press: “Thirty-six years after Vermonters voted to unify the court system, Gov. Jim Douglas on Thursday signed a bill to implement those changes . . . Under the 369-page bill Douglas signed, probate court districts no longer will follow the borders of Vermont’s 14 counties; instead the courts will have five probate districts, with rural counties bunched together and the most populous, Chittenden, forming its own district. New probate judges will be required to be lawyers.”
