Will An Adult Court Finally Hear Prop 8 Case?

Sure looks like it, and about time. Proposition 8 will be upheld.

 The Proposition 8 legal team filed papers today appealing to the Supreme Court to respect the will of the California voters and the definition of marriage. We have said all along that the case would go to the Supreme Court, removed from the reach of the clownish Judge Vaughn Walker, and the most overturned Judge in the most overturned court in the land, Judge Stephen Reinhardt of  the Ninth Circuit.

Some examples, in reverse chronological order:

In a foregone conclusion, the Ninth Circuit today refused the petition for an en banc rehearing of Judge Reinhardt's anti-marriage ruling.

The Ninth Circuit is expected to rule tomorrow on the Proposition 8 case. As we have said many times before, given the court's makeup, we expect the Ninth Circuit to uphold Judge Walker's ruling, and we equally expect their decision to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Reinhardt, who should have recused himself (see here, here, and here), and the others will almost certainly uphold Walker's ruling. Then, on to the Supreme Court!
