On Nov. 5 in the Boney Courthouse in downtown Anchorage, Superior Court Judge Jennifer Henderson heard oral argument on the State of Alaska’s motion to dismiss the case ACLU v. Dunleavy. Prior to the hearing, about 35 supporters listened to ACLU demonstrators on the plaza abutting 4th Avenue, their ranks dotted with “I Stand With Planned Parenthood” picket signs. A few “Dunleavy for Governor” partisans stood close by. At issue is Governor Mike Dunleavy’s veto...

In the lead up to its Nov. 5 court date the ACLU of Alaska is attempting to drum up support for a lawsuit it filed against Governor Dunleavy veto of $334,700 from the Alaska Court System’s 2020 budget. The governor’s action came after the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that the state had to pay the exact amount for so-called “medically necessary” abortions performed in 2018. On Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 2 p.m., the ACLU is...

Katrina Jackson, a representative in the Louisiana State House, boldly proclaims that she is a black, Democrat and unapologetically pro-life. She brought that message to Alaska last week during a fundraising event for the Alaska Family Council in Anchorage. Speaking to an audience that included Gov. Mike Dunleavy and many movers and shakers in the conservative and pro-life community, Jackson challenged Alaskans to think outside party lines when it comes to core issues like marriage,...

Governor Mike Dunleavy expressed admiration for President Donald Trump’s methodical reshaping the nation’s federal courts with the appointment of pro-life, constitutionalist judges. The governor also reaffirmed his commitment to fight against state funding for abortions in Alaska. Speaking in Anchorage for an Oct. 26 gathering of roughly 150 conservative and pro-life leaders at a fundraising banquet for the pro-life Alaska Family Council, the governor said Trump’s appointees to the federal courts represent a “once in...

The Alaska Supreme Court made headlines again when the Anchorage Daily News published a report showing Chief Justice Joel Bolger appealing to the Alaska Federation of Natives for help in the Court’s ongoing budgetary dispute with Governor Mike Dunleavy. At issue is the subject of abortion, abortion funding, and the governor’s veto of $334,700 from the Supreme Court’s budget – the exact amount the Court ordered the state to pay abortionists for killing 805 babies...

The “hierarchy of law” is an ancient concept that some laws are more important than others. In our rancorous and increasingly nonsensical political climate, everyone accepts this idea. Just which laws are more important than others, however, is where the argument hinges.   RELINQUISHING NATURAL LAW Once upon a time, in order of priority, the Natural Law reigned supreme, followed by constitutional law, statutory law, common law and, way down at the bottom, case law....

I watched the lawsuit and litigation play out this summer between the City of Anchorage and the Downtown Hope Center. The entire incident leading to the lawsuit would be great satirical fodder for the pages of The Onion, but it very much happened. Were it a short story, you could be forgiven for the title “Crazy-Town in A-Town.” And given that the City of Anchorage was forced to pay $100,000 in legal fees to the...

“Dunleavy’s attack on unions is an attack on all Alaskans,” or so read the Sept. 29 headline of an Anchorage Daily News commentary piece by union leader Jake Metcalfe, the executive director of the Alaska State Employees Association. The column was in response to Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s administrative order, based upon the legal opinion of Attorney General Kevin Clarkson, which mandated a change in how Alaska collects union dues and fees from public employees. The...
