Judge Walker, Who Ruled That a Constitutional Amendement Is Itself Unconstitutional If It Blocks Gay Marriage, Caught Coordinating With Pro-Gay-Marriage Legal Team


Judge Walker was criticized for not recusing himself from the case because he himself is gay.

Well, leave that argument for another day. But the import of that criticism is that Walker was too emotionally invested in a particular outcome to rule the case. A judge, after all, is supposed to be unbiased as to the matter before him.

Well, Judge Walker is so unbiased as to the ruling he's emailing the winning side of the case -- the lawyers who argued, successfully, that a constitutional amendment was itself unconstitutional (???) --if he should attend the Supreme Court's hearings on it, or if that would create a political difficulty for the pro-gay-marriage side -- or, as he calls it, an "unwanted distraction."

But he means "political difficulty."

So a judge, who was supposedly unbiased in the matter, is emailing the lead attorney he gave the win to as to whether is his presence at the hearings would be helpful to them, or unhelpful.

The only thing that can keep this from stinking to high hell is if Walker sent the same email to the legal team on the other side of this. I doubt he did, but we'll have to see.

But what we have here, at the moment, is a supposedly-neutral judge asking the legal team pushing the position he obviously favors what he can do to help them win at the Supreme Court.

You know, like neutral, unbiased judges do.
