Boo! Prop 8 Supporters Appeal Walker Ruling Because Judge Is In A Same-Sex Relationship

prop 8 supporters fight against judge walker again

Earlier this month, we were very happy to announce that Prop 8 proponents' motion to vacate Judge Vaughn Walker's ruling that Prop 8 was "unconstitutional" was DENIED!

Now, proponents of Prop 8 are once again trying to fight against the Judge Walker ruling, on the basis that he's in a long-term same-sex relationship.

Prop 8 supporters are claiming that Judge Walker never disclosed he had a same-sex partner, and therefore his ruling should be thrown out. They believe his decision is biased due to the fact that he could personally benefit from legalization of same-sex marriage in California. Ugh.

Fortunately, groups that are fighting against Prop 8 such as Lambda Legal and the American Foundation for Equal Rights are coming to Judge Walker's defense.

Here's what Lambda Legal's Peter Renn had to say about this new move against Walker's ruling by Prop 8 supporters:

"The court decisively rejected an outrageous attack on the integrity of Judge Walker, not to mention judges in general. The motion was a sideshow designed to deflect attention from the fact that the proponents had every chance to prove that Prop. 8 was constitutional, but could not do so. Prop. 8 was declared unconstitutional because it is unconstitutional — not because the judge is gay."

THANK YOU! We wholeheartedly agree!

Let's hope that these Prop 8 supporters swiftly get shut down once again.
