The state of Arkansas has been ordered to pay more than $71,000 to the attorney for same-sex couples who won a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that the state's birth-certificate law was unconstitutional. Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Tim Fox ruled Friday that the state must pay attorney Cheryl Maples for her work leading to the ruling that Arkansas must issue birth certificates to married lesbian couples that list both spouses as the parents of their children.

It's relatively funny that most people don't realize that the winners can bring a motion for costs in these spurious cases.

Such birth certificates are false documents. Yes, Philly, even if you're straight.

When did a fundie type or any legal group sue over a state's "disparate" treatment of birth certificates when heterosexual parents were the adopters? Never.

The clear issue, closet case, is that the backwards, buybull belt state in question has one procedure for the heterosexual couples' cases and another only for the same sex couples' cases. Oh,_had_ one procedure for str8 couples and a separate, lesser one for lgbt couples. That's been fixed. Urinate yourself in rage over it, closet case.

$71k seems low as it appears form the summary not to involve punitive damages going to the same sex couples, but only billable hours to their counsel.

Oddly enough, the court didn't think so. Once again, you prove that you know nothing about any of the topics you choose to chime in upon.

I know that birth records name the biological parents or they are false.

That has nothing to do with the accuracy of the document. Are you lost?

Fundie type legal groups haven't sued over this "inaccuracy" when it comes to str8 parents.

The buybull belt state did not behave similarly regarding this "inaccuracy" when it came to str8 parents.

That's not only relevant, it's the basis of the court decision. Stick to what you do best: Urinating in rage in public spaces on other men. Leave the homophobic legal storytelling to those closet cases who have their psychosexual issues under slightly better control than you.

That is one idiot's opinion.

You seem to suffer from the delusion that your oppinon carries the weight of law. It does not.

It doesn't carry water. It illustrates that you are not an intelligent person.

It indicates that you don't know the difference between a fact and a lie. That may be common among compulsive liars like yourself.

It is a fact that same sex birth certificates are legal records. Your opinion to the contrary is a lie.

This isn't my opinion, it is the law, which if you had read the article you would know.

It isn't my fault that you are stupid.

Puppy, you really are having a poor showing today. Not really unusual. I never said that birth certificates aren't legal records. I said that in the case of adoption, if the adoptive parents are listed, they are false. Wow, something else you can't understand. Did you graduate from high school?

Not even the backwards buybull belt states agree with you on your fake accuracy jihad...concerning str8 adoptive parent(s).

Arkansas tried to agree with you but only with respect to same sex adoptive parents and so now Arkansas is going to have to pay some billable hours for its bigotry.

But Arkansas isn't as stupid or sexually twisted as you are.

I'm not asking anyone to agree or approve. I'm stating a fact, period. Why are you so twisted? Sick? Angry?

As opposed to you who are having no showing at all. At least in this post you attempt to address the topic, even if you completely fail to acknowledge reality and merely repeat your own inept opinion.

And, depending upon the jurisdiction, you are wrong. Wondering, try to wrap your brain around the fact that laws are written by legislatures, they aren't contingent upon your personal opinion.

I'm not the one who can't understand the law. I'm not the one suffering from the delusion that my opinion is the law. If you could read, you would understand that the birthparent provision was ruled unconstitutional. Your opinion that the ruling was incorrect has no bearing whatsoever upon the law or the status of birth certificates that do not list the birth parents.

Truly, Wondering, you are an idiot.

You're not stating a fact, as the court demonstrated. And you're acting out in your closetedly, homophobic, hypocritical way as usual.

But if you get your psychosexually ill, right wing rcc legal groups to take up this "important" issue of inaccuracy on birth certificates with respect to str8, adoptive couples then you'll have enough of a feather in your cap to doubtlessly stop urinating in rage on other men in public for a day or so.
