Bai Macfarlane of Mary’s Advocates discusses the constitutional challenge against the Massachusetts no-fault divorce statute with guest, Matthew Johnston. Matthew is extremely knowledgable about the strategy used by the defendant, which focusses on the “illegality” of any legislation that enacts viewpoint-based statutes.
The defendant challenging n0-fault divorce is Mark Dallmeyer and he invites other divorce defendants to contact him who are interested in making similar challenge in their own state. He can be reached at [email protected]. It is important for defendants to act quickly to avoid forfeiting their ability to make their own constitutional challenge.
