Doe v. Alaska Dep't of Public Safety

In Doe v. Alaska Dep't of Public Safety, 92 P.3d 398 (Alaska 2004), the Alaska Supreme Court held that Alaska's newly enacted version of the Adam Walsh Act could not be applied to a sex offender whose conviction had been set aside before the law was enacted. Id. at 412. That holding, however, was based, at least in part, on the determination that a protected liberty interest arose from the set-aside order. Id. at 410.
