California’s Proposition 8 Overturned: Judge Who Initially Upheld It is Heterosexual
California’s Proposition 8, banning gay marriage (often referred to as Proposition Hate), has been overturned. Apparently there was a conflict of interest because the judge who initially upheld the law is a heterosexual. Therefore the judge is not capable of making an unbiased ruling.
OOPS. My Bad.
Sorry, I had it turned around. OK: the backers of Proposition Hate are trying to invalidate last year’s ruling that Proposition Hate is unconstitutional, on the grounds that the judge who issued the ruling — former Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker — is gay.
