This is a CNN Video of Ted Olson discussing the ruling by Judge Walker today in the Constitutional Challenge to California’s Proposition 8. As you’ve probably now heard, Judge Walked declared Proposition 8 Unconstitutional, and basically said if failed on strict scrutiny and on a rational basis argument.
From what I can tell, which isn’t much, Judge Walker recognized the import of this decision, and he has no interest in being overturned. It appears he was careful in creating a complete trial record, often even coaching the defendants attorney’s. One can never tell what a few of the crazies on the Supreme Court will do, but if they follow the law, it will be very hard for them to overturn Walker’s decision.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjv_AMI8H0M]
