Prop 8 Perry Trial Decision Coming Imminently? Is Judge Walker Even Around? Nah

Well if the DOMA ruling wasn’t enough news today, how about this: Judge Vaughn Walker will release his decision in the federal Prop 8 trial, Perry v. Schwarzenegger, at 6pm PST/9pm EST, say LOTS OF SOURCES ON THE INTERNET. Except: Is Judge Walker even around? Nobody is picking up the phones at the courts, and according to the courts’ website:

NOTICE OF UNAVAILABILITY:
JUDGE WALKER WILL BE UNAVAILABLE DURING THIS PERIOD:
JULY 8 and 9, 2010
AUGUST 16 through AUGUST 20, 2010
OCTOBER 11 through OCTOBER 15, 2010

If not, well, I’m still in a good mood otherwise.
