KY State Supreme Court Votes Down Marsy’s Law

The Kentucky State Supreme Court has voted down Marsy’s Law. In November of 2018 voters in Kentucky said yes to Marsy’s Law, a constitutional amendment that gives crime victims more rights.But the Supreme Court of Kentucky says that law was not passed correctly.Back in February, lawyers argued over whether or not the actual law was right or wrong, and on Thursday the court made it clear…it was not.So why is the process such a big deal?Marsy’s Law was passed as a constitutional amendment, meaning the voters had to agree to it.And on Nov. 6, 2018, 66 percent of voters said yes.However, the actual amendment is 555 words long and on the ballot voters only saw a 38-word question.
