Court cases

The ACLUAK supported a lawsuit filed by Vic Fischer, a former Democratic legislator in the state of Alaska concerning Alaska Personhood of Unborn Children Act (2010). The lawsuit states that Lieutenant Governor Craig Campbell shouldn’t have certified the measure. The lawsuit also aims to stop the sponsors of the bill from circulating the petition.[3]
