Futuristic Court Cases

New Washington, Mars (IPA)––Thousands of New Washington martians from the northeast quadrant of sector 711 protested outside the Intergalactic Supreme Court today as justices began deliberations on a number of hotly contested issues including inter-species marriage, multi-religious freedom and intergalactic commerce. 

The justices are hoping to cover all the core issues that the average martian on the planet is currently facing; issues such as understanding marriage in regards to the martian race and the earthling race, practicing a multitude of various religions simultaneously and the intergalactic trade agreements of martians utilizing earthling money.

Spokesmartian for the Intergalactic Supreme Court told the Intergalactic Press Agency outside the Intergalactic Supreme Court spacecraft. “I have faith that our Justices will be able to guide the controversial martian-earthling relationships in these decisions, to help them better understand how all of us can better interact regarding inter-species marriages, the freedom to practice a multitude of various and at times conflicting religious beliefs and foreign trade intergalactic-commerce interactions with martian and earthling money.”

One issue receiving lots of attention is that of intergalactic marriage. The question of whether martians could legally marry earthlings was first thrust into the spotlight when well known earthling space hockey player Wave Greatsky fell in love with martian actress of spaceship stage and teleport screen Planet Jones, causing a storm of controversy.

Another highly controversial issue is whether martians can practice a variety of religions including earthling religions or whether they should practice the one and only traditional martian religion which has existed for a gazillion years.

Another contentious issue is the worthiness or worthlessness of the earthling monetary system.

Other issues the justices might also be considering are whether it’s permissible to form crop circles outside one’s own space property and what kind of consensual agreement is required for earthling probing to be lawfully allowed by martians.

Justice Marciano was overheard to mutter, “Oh, what I would give to go back to those uncomplicated Supreme Court decisions of 2015!”
