Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com AUGUST 27, 2004 5 |n§^ national news Military high court upholds sodomy ban in some cases WASHINGTON —The nation's highest military court ruled unanimously this week that under certain circumstances the Pentagon's ban on sodomy is constitutional, according to the New York Times. It is the first ruling that relates to the military's laws on sodomy since the Supreme Court struck down state anti-sodomy laws last year. However, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces avoided the larger question of whether protections offered by the Supreme Court's sweeping decision in Lawrence vs. Texas apply universally That leaves open the possibility that civil rights lawyers might find another case to test the Pentagon ban on consensual sodomy. The case decided this week involved a former Air Force sergeant's sexual relationship with a subordinate, and the five judges gave considerable weight to military regulations barring any such relationship in the same command. "The court ducked the issues in this case," said C. Dixon Osburn, executive director of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, which had The court ducked the issues in this filed papers in support of striking down the prohibi- case,' said C. Dixon Osbum, executions. At least nine other cases involving acts of sodomy five director of the Servicemembers in the military are under appeal, he said. Legal Defense Network Men drop lawsuits accusing TV personality of stalking NEW YORK — Lawsuits alleging that TV anchor Steve Bartelstein harassed and stalked two men in two separate incidents have been dropped, the New York Post reported. Bartelstein, formerly a CNN sports anchor and currently appearing on the ABC affiliate in New York City was accused by former co-worker Roderick McCollum, a writer, of stalking him after McCollum rebuffed Bartelstein's alleged advances, the Post rej>orted. Actor Dan Levine alleged in another suit that Bartelstein, his former roommate, abused him, "knowingly transmitted various communicable diseases" to him and stalked him after the two split, according to the Post. William Kaiser, attorney for both McCollum and Levine, said both were "satisfied" with the resolution of the cases; he refused to elaborate, the Post reported. Ron Fischetti, attorney for Bartelstein, said a confidentiality agreement precluded him from discussing the Levine case, according to the Post. Bartelstein agreed to drop his defamation countersuit in the McCollum case, according to Fischetti, in return for McCollum dropping his suit, the Post reported. Cherokee Nation council defines marriage to stop lesbian union TULSA, Okla. (AP) - About a month after a lesbian couple successfully filed for a tribal marriage application, the Cherokee National Tribal Council voted to clearly define marriage as between a man and a woman. Principal Chief Chad Smith has indicated he will sign the measure, which was approved by the council last week. The change to tribal marriage law would not affect Kathy Reynolds and Dawn McKinley. who were married last month in a Cherokee cereini my Cherokee Nation laws are not retroactive. A Cherokee Nation District Court scheduled a hearing to discuss a legal protest of McKinley's and Reynolds' marriage application. The outcome of that hearing will determine whether their union is legal. After McKinley and Reynolds applied for the application May 13, DarreU Dowty. chief justice of the Judicial Appeals Tribunal, ordered a moratorium on marriages that was set to expire early next week. Legal battle continues over Ohio gay rights ballot issue CINCINNATI (AP) — An effort to repeal a 1993 charter amendment that made this the only US. city to ban enactment or enforcement of laws based on sexual orientation continues to be the subject of a legal dispute as the election nears. A judge last week rejected a request for a temporary restraining order to keep the repeal off the Nov. 2 ballot, but set an Aug. 30 hearing to consider issues in the case. Opponents of the repeal said they do not view Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Mark Schweikert's rejection of the restraining order as a setback in their effort to keep the city from passing gay rights laws. Phil Burress, president of Equal Rights, No Special Rights, said his group is concerned that the wording on petitions to get the issue on the ballot is misleading. The ballot language now states: "Shall the charter of the city of Cincinnati be amended to repeal Article XII, which prohibits the city from protecting people from discrimination based on sexual orientation?" Burress said including the word "discrimination" is incorrect. Out-of-state gay couples plan to appeal Mass. marriage ruling BOSTON (AP) — Out-of-state gay couples barred from getting married in Massachusetts said they would appeal a judge's ruling that denied their request to halt enforcement of the 1913 law being used to block their unions. The law, which some say was written to be used against interracial couples, denies out-of-state couples the right to marry if it would be illegal in their home state, Since same-sex weddings became legal in Massachusetts in May, state officials have used the law to stop nonresident couples from coming here to get married. Superior Court Judge Carol Ball ruled last week that the law was not discriminatory, despite a concern that it violates the spirit of fhe state's landmark same-sex marriage decision. Michele Granda, a lawyer with Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, said the couples would immediately appeal the ruling to the State Appeals court. From staff and wire reports
