Attorney Deborah Wald on the integrity of California Supreme Court justices

03/17/09 Daily Journal (posted to the National Center for Lesbian Rights):

Deborah Wald is Founder of the Wald Law Group, Chair of the National Family Law Advisory Council of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Co-Chair of the Board of Directors of Our Family Coalition. In this opinion article, she expresses concern that, during the oral arguments, California Supreme Court justices acted as if "they didn’t say what they clearly said less than a year ago [in In re Marriage Cases, 43 Cal.4th 757 (2008)]: that fundamental equality for same-sex couples - protected by our state Equal Protection Clause - requires that committed same-sex partners be allowed the opportunity to marry."
