"Relators' mount unusual legal challenge to authority of Sen. Del Marsh"

The Anniston Star reports: On a Thursday morning in a dimly-lit courtroom in downtown Montgomery, Donald Curtis Casey, a retired Birmingham steel company employee, is telling a judge why he wants to remove the president pro tempore of the Alabama Senate from office.

He's also trying to explain why he doesn't consider himself a plaintiff, nor does he consider Sen. Del Marsh, R-Anniston, a defendant.

"This is a situation where we have filed a quo warranto, and it's not a justiciable controversy," Casey said. He pronounces it "jus-TICK-able."

"Jus-TISH-able," Circuit Court Judge William Shashy replies. "Let me tell you something. When you say it's not a justiciable controversy, you're talking against your own case." -- 'Relators' mount unusual legal challenge to authority of Sen. Del Marsh - The Anniston Star: News

Comment: No excerpt can do justice to this bizarre attack on Sen. Marsh because he was the sponsor of a bill to create a Constitutional Revision Commission.
