Yale Law Prof on Judge Walker’s Prop 8 ruling: “a remarkably limited and vulnerable opinion”


As we have noted before, under the headlines even pro-gay marriage legal experts are expressing increasing reservations about Judge Walker's strange opinion.  Yale Law Prof. Lea Brilmayer, joins the mounting criticism today in the Washington Post.

"The invalidation of California's Proposition 8 is based on the U.S. Constitution's due process and equal protection clauses -- not the California State Constitution -- and is potentially of national consequence. But while he rehearsed every nuance of the evidence introduced at trial, Judge Vaughn Walker left us with a remarkably limited and vulnerable opinion."
