Evil Alabama mother-in-law Pat Fancher and the Foundation For Moral Law have finally lost their attempt to deny gay widower Paul Hard the proceeds from a wrongful death suit filed on behalf of his late husband, who died in a car accident in 2011. Equality Case Files has the order:
The Clerk of the Court is DIRECTED to issue a check drawn on ServisFirst Bank where the funds are deposited in a money market account for the principal amount of $552,956.69, plus ninety percent of all interest earned to date that is due for distribution to Plaintiff Paul Hard. This check shall be made payable to Servis First Bank. ServisFirst Bank shall provide the Clerk of the Court with official checks payable to: a. The Southern Poverty Law Center Client Trust Account in the principal amount of $552,956.69, plus ninety percent interest earned to date; and b. The Clerk of the Court for ten percent of all interest earned to date to the U.S. Treasury.
Two weeks ago the Foundation For Moral Law filed an argument which claimed that the Obergefell ruling does not apply retroactively to unsettled legal claims.
“The issue is not whether someone may marry a member of the same sex today. The issue is whether a court may or should look back four years and recognize a marriage that was not legally valid. Of course, if the marriage is recognized it will only cause further economic harm to a family which has already lost one its own. And if recognized, this man will be awarded an entire spousal share of the wrongful death proceeds which would be unjust even under normal circumstances considering the two were ‘married’ less than 3 months.”
Immediately following the above-linked ruling, the Foundation For Moral Law filed a motion to set aside the order. The same judge responded by saying, “Didn’t I just say go fuck yourself?”
