Hearing set for Bessemer attorney who filed suit after same-sex marriage legalization

Local News

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — A hearing is set for a lawsuit a Bessemer attorney filed against five U.S. Supreme Court justices.

Austin Burdick filed the suit after the court ruled same-sex marriage legal.

The lawsuit does not discuss the issue of gay marriage. Instead, it says the justices abandoned the constitution and violated their oath of office with the ruling.

Burdick’s lawsuit says the court’s opinion includes language that departs from prior precedent. He claims the ruling allows the government to interfere in fundamental rights at a personal level.

A hearing is set for 3 p.m. on October 26 in the Birmingham Federal District Court.
