Frivolous Motion DeniedThe least meritorious argument ever crafted by a lawyer not representing Conrad Black has been rejected by the Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California:
"It is not reasonable to presume that a judge is incapable of making an impartial decision about the constitutionality of a law, solely because, as a citizen, the judge could be affected by the proceedings," Ware wrote in his ruling.Of course, the losers plan to appeal, citing the devastating destruction of marriage already caused by the ruling.
The chief judge said all Californians share an interest in having the the Constitution enforced. The "single interest" Walker shared with the same-sex couples who challenged Proposition 8 "gave him no greater interest in a proper decision on the merits that would exist for any other judge or citizen," Ware wrote.
I wouldn't be surprised if Rick Santorum leaves his wife for a Doberman by week's end.
