From Austin Burdick:
Bessemer, Alabama- October 18, 2016- A hearing has been set for October 26, 2016 at 3:00 PM in the Birmingham Federal District Court in the case of Burdick vs. Kennedy et al.
Bessemer attorney, Austin Burdick, filed a lawsuit against five US Supreme Court Justices after their ruling in OBERGEFELL v. Hodges, which legalized same sex marriage. The lawsuit does not the issue of gay marriage; rather, it asserts that the defendants, JUSTICE ANTHONY M. KENNEDY, JUSTICE STEPHEN G. BREYER, JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG, JUSTICE SONIA SOTOMAYOR, and JUSTICE ELENA KAGAN abandoned the Constitution and violated their oath of office.
Burdick states in his lawsuit that the US Supreme Court’s opinion includes language that departs from all prior precedent and rewrites the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution while redefing the terms “freedom” and “liberty”. An amendment that has always acted as a limitation on government action is now said to be the basis for granting the government power to interfere in fundamental rights at a most intimate and personal level. This ruling sets aside nearly 150 years of protection and opens a Pandora’s box for court’s to expand government infringement into the lives and liberties of individuals in a multitude of other cases..Burdick hopes, that through his lawsuit, he can convince the Federal Court to issue a ruling that will uphold the US Constitution and limit government overreach.
The Federal Court in Birmingham, Alabama will hear oral arguments at the October 26, 2016 at 3:00 to determine whether or not to dismiss the case.
