CALIFORNIA: Newly Seated Pro-Gay Justice Likely To Hear Prop 8 Arguments

Newly seated California Supreme Court Justice Goodwin Liu, who has expressed support for same-sex marriage, is expected to hear Prop 8 arguments next week when the issue of standing is represented to the Court. Anti-gay groups have loudly called for Goodwin to recuse himself from the case based on his past statements. That, apparently, will not be happening. And as you’d expect, the Family Research Council is ever so pissed. Fantastic.
