Attorney tries again on adoption ban case brief

An attorney who had a brief in an adoption-ban case rejected by the Arkansas Supreme Court is hopeful the court will reconsider and allow the filing, reports the Associated Press.

Attorney Dan Greenberg represents Roger Hiatt, a Little Rock psychiatrist who endorses a state ban on allowing unmarried couples to be foster parents or adopt children. Earlier this year, a Pulaski County judge ruled that the ban approved by voters in 2008 is unconstitutional. That decision has been appealed.

Greenberg tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that the Supreme Court initially rejected Hiatt’s attempt to submit a supporting brief in the case without saying why. Greenberg says that since then, the court has allowed similar filings from several groups that oppose the ban. The court could consider Hiatt’s request at its Thursday session.
