Oohh, so this is why Judge Vaughn Walker struck down Prop 8 knowing full well he was going to retire: so he could get a cushy job at some high-power law firm!
Maggie Gallagher, in her finite wisdom, explains Walker’s career move: “How could Judge Walker exhibit such gross bias and deliver such an injudicious opinion? The answer appears to be, in part, that it was his swan song. He’ll leave the bench famous, a hero in his hometown, and a hot commodity in whatever private venture he moves into.”
There go the gays, getting wealthy again.
