California Supreme Court Justice Ron George Said Yes to Gay Marriage. Now He Says Yes to Retirement

California Supreme Court Chief Justice Ron George, 70, who authored the 2008 opinion that legalized same-sex marriage for a few months before voters reversed the court’s call, and then ruled to uphold the voter-approved Prop 8 that hijacked his own decision, announced his resignation today — a move “stunning colleagues.” He’s purposefully resigning in time to let his buddy Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger pick his replacement.
