Re: New California Justice Goodwin Liu and the Anti-Prop 8 Case

A follow-up to my post last week anticipating yesterday’s California supreme court oral argument on the question that the Ninth Circuit panel in the anti-Prop 8 case certified to that court: How Appealing links to several articles about the oral argument.

I was unable to follow the oral argument myself, and I’d generally be cautious about drawing conclusions about how a court will rule from the questions that justices ask. That said, the general thrust of the articles is very favorable to the prospect that the court will rule in a way that supports the standing of Prop 8 proponents to pursue their appeal of former judge Vaughn Walker’s anti-Prop 8 ruling.
