I really hope (and believe) the appeals court (and eventually the Supreme Court) will rule the Prop 8 unconstitutionality findings written by Judge Walker are based completely on facts and the insults to the laws/Constitution of the United States, as meticulously supported in the text of his findings/ruling.
There is no "bias" in the detailed and supported findings. There was no case really presented by the proponents. There were no "expert" testimonies, only unsupported and admittedly opinion and animus and "I don't know" answers by the proponents in the trial.
Of course the opposition will continue desperately to throw up specious arguments of "bias", "activist gay judge" with something to gain personally (pure speculation on the future, of course), and so on. Just as with President Obama and the birth certificate, then the college transcripts, then....what else? The goal post keeps moving on the part of the anti-equality groups like NOM, AFA, FRC, the Prop 8 supporters, etc.. It's time to call the game for equality.
PS The tapes weren't broadcast from the trial, as blocked by the Supreme Court -- the later viewing of tapes after the trial shouldn't violate that earlier proscription, IMO. The transcripts are public, after all.....a visual version now is really no different!
