Pro-Prop 8 Motion to Vacate Ruling Denied

California Prop. 8 proponents filed a motion in Federal District Court to vacate the ruling of Judge Vaughn Walker in Perry v. Schwarzenegger.  They asserted that, because Walker was gay and in a relationship he stood to benefit from his ruling.    Basically, he was biased due to gayness.  The bullshit, desperate motion which was just shy of sanctionable, was denied today by Judge James Ware

"Equal protection and due process benefit all society, not just minorities, Ware writes, and "all Californians have an equal interest in the outcome of the case." ... "The single characteristic that Judge Walker shares with the Plaintiffs ... gave him no greater interest in a proper decision on the merits."
