Andrew Pugno, one of the attorneys defending Prop. 8, today complained that Judge Vaughn Walker is allowing his side to be "railroaded" by the plaintiffs. He said there is a "double standard" with regard to documents and videos being allowed into evidence. This line of messaging bears watching. In previous email messages to supporters, ProtectMarriage.com has warned that this judge seems biased. Here is an excerpt from one of those emails:
"Thankfully, some of Judge Walker's rulings have already been overturned by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. But as the trial begins, there is no question that virtually every ruling so far has put traditional marriage at an increasing disadvantage. The consistency with which the judge has sided with our opponents is anything but comforting to supporters of traditional marriage.
But one thing is for certain: no matter how Judge Walker eventually rules in the Perry trial, this legal saga is destined for appeals and a final decision in the U.S. Supreme Court. Ultimately, it will not be Judge Walker's views on marriage that decide this case, but rather those of the nine Justices on the highest court in the nation."
