Government of the Courts, by the Courts, and for the Courts? – Judge says Prop 8 advocates have no standing to appeal

August 13, 2010 Politisite 0

Every legal expert in America knows that the battle over marriage has just begun–everyone, it seems, but Judge Vaughn Walker. Now that he’s overturned Proposition 8, Walker says our side has suddenly lost their standing to appeal. To people familiar with the courts and the appellate process, that statement is totally absurd. If the proponents of Prop 8 didn’t have standing, there wouldn’t have been a trial in the first place! A judge can’t strip away a group’s standing when it’s convenient for him. As an open homosexual, I’m sure that Walker would like nothing better than to say, “Case closed!” But that’s not the way our legal system works. If a team of attorneys has standing to defend Proposition 8, then surely they have a right to appeal a ruling abolishing it.

May 12, 2010 Politisite 0

So why did Kagan put Innocent life in quotes?  what does this tell us about her?  In 1980 following the wins for the Republican party, Kagan wrote, “victories of these anonymous but Moral Majority-backed [candidates] . . . these avengers of ‘innocent life’ and the B-1 Bomber . . .” By putting the Term ‘innocent life” in quotes is more then telling, she is alluding that the unborn are not […]
