Hurricane recovery continues nine years later
By MICHAEL K. LAVERSmlavers@washblade.com
NEW ORLEANS — It was around 2 a.m. on Aug. 27, 2005, when Vicki Weeks, executive director of Belle Reve, a residence for people with HIV/AIDS in New Orleans’ Marigny neighborhood, and three of her
staffers began to evacuate the Crescent City ahead of Hurricane Katrina with eight clients who had no
other way to leave.
It took the group eight hours to drive three miles on Interstate 10 in New Orleans because of a massive traffi c jam.
Panel seems inclined to rule 3-0for gay nuptials
By CHRIS JOHNSONcjohnson@washblade.com
CHICAGO — A three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday grilled attorneys
who were defending same-sex marriage bans in Wisconsin and Indiana.
The judges who heard the lawsuits seeking to
overturn the bans on same-sex marriage in Wisconsin and Indiana consisted of Richard Posner, a Reagan
appointee; Ann Claire Williams, a Clinton appointee;
and David Hamilton, an Obama appointee.
Based on the skepticism these judges expressed
regarding marriage bans in these states, the panel seems headed toward ruling 3-0 in favor of marriage equality.Posner was most aggressive in the questioning of
attorneys defending bans on same-sex marriage. The  judge asked Indiana Solicitor General Thomas Fisher
repeatedly why the state would want children with
same-sex parents to be worse off than children with
opposite-sex parents, then grew frustrated when the attorney could not provide a satisfactory answer.
When Fisher mentioned that opposite-sex marriage enables procreation because a “fleeting moment
of passion leads to the creation of children,” Posner asked why sterile opposite-sex couples should be allowed to wed.Posner was similarly frustrated with Wisconsin
Assistant Attorney General Timothy Samuelson
