A orientação do juiz

1 - "[Los Angeles] Times Assistant Managing Editor David Lauter, who oversees California coverage, responded that the fact that Walker is gay is well-known in San Francisco legal circles. Walker attends public functions with his male partner." Aqui

2 - "I disagree with Times Assistant Managing Editor David Lauter's claim that the sexual orientation of Northern District of California Chief Judge Vaughn Walker is relevant to the paper's reporting on the federal Proposition 8 case Walker adjudicated. [...] This is a double standard that undermines our judicial system and legitimizes a presumption that a gay judge's sexual orientation makes his or her decisions suspect in a case regarding same-sex equal rights when no such presumption exists for heterosexual judges."
