The freedom to show butt cleavage will not be abridged in Louisiana, after all. A bill proposed by state Rep. Derrick Shepherd, D-Marrero, that would outlaw low-riding pants that expose underwear or anything else traditionally below the belt failed to pass the House Tuesday. State Rep. Danny Martiny, R-Kenner, said, “Passing this law will make us the laughingstock of the country.” Oops, too late … Massachusetts and California notwithstanding, the Arizona Supreme Court has refused to take up a challenge filed by a gay couple to a lower court’s decision upholding the state’s 1996 law banning same-sex marriages. The Court of Appeals held that such unions are not a fundamental constitutional right … It was last call on the bench Tuesday when the Louisiana Supreme Court removed District Judge Monty L. Doggett from his position. The ruling said Doggett issued arrest warrants he was too drunk to read, was sometimes so inebriated that proceedings were canceled, and had to be helped from court by his deputies once. The justices expressed compassion for Doggett’s struggle with alcoholism, but said they must put the judiciary first … That’s putting the “green” in “green card”: Two women were indicted this week on felony charges for allegedly running a marriage fraud ring in which they arranged for U.S. citizens to marry foreign nationals seeking green cards — some of whom paid up to $5,000 for the privilege. The investigation began after an alert employee of the Milam County, Texas, clerk’s office noticed a few people getting married awfully frequently … Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols was convicted Wednesday of 161 state murder charges, after only five hours of jury deliberations. Nichols, already serving a life sentence on federal charges, could now face the death penalty. – Lydia Markoff
