Judge’s impartiality

“Prop. 8 challenge to gay judge’s ruling rejected”: Bob Egelko has this article in The San Francisco Chronicle.

In The Los Angeles Times, Maura Dolan reports that “Gay judge wasn’t required to remove himself from same-sex marriage case, U.S. judge rules; Judge Vaughn R. Walker, who has been in a long-term relationship, last year ruled that the Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage in California was unconstitutional; The new ruling establishes that gay judges may decide gay rights cases without having to defend their impartiality.”

Howard Mintz of The San Jose Mercury News reports that “Judge rejects bid to set aside Proposition 8 ruling.”

And The New York Times reports that “California Judge Upholds a Ruling on Gay Marriage.”
