Chief Justice Dana Fabe today addressed a Joint Session of the Alaska Legislature. She hurried out of the House Chambers after her report to the Legislature without taking questions, unlike most luminaries who address Joint Sessions. She thereby avoided a question I had prepared for her, to wit:

“I have been taught that, in our system of government, the Judiciary, Legislative, and Executive branches are co-equal branches of government – no one branch of government having more power than the other. Furthermore, I have been taught that it is the legislative branch that appropriates money and makes laws - not the Judiciary. If this is true, how do you reconcile recent Court decisions that appear to legislate how the state spends its money?”
