Author of CA Supreme Court’s judicial decision in favor of marriage to step down

July 14th, 2010

From the Mercury News:

California Chief Justice Ron George announced his retirement Wednesday, stunning colleagues and court watchers who saw him issue the opinion that briefly legalized gay marriage and passionately work to consolidate the state’s once Byzantine court system.

George said he timed his decision in part so Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger could name his successor.

George is advising Schwarzenegger on his replacement. As the In Re: Marriages case is George’s legacy, it seems likely that he will counsel in favor of a replacement who shares his perspective on gay issues.
