Judge Ware Denies Prop8 Groups Request To Vacate Judge Walkers Ruling

Excellent News!! This is a big deal, for it proves that prejudices regarding sexual orientation are slowly starting to fall in our legal system! Onward to full equality! From the LA Times.

A federal judge on Tuesday refused to invalidate last year's ruling against Proposition 8, deciding the gay jurist who overturned the same-sex marriage ban had no obligation to step aside because of a possible conflict of interest.
The decision by Chief Judge James Ware of the U.S. District Court in San Francisco left the ruling by retired Judge Vaughn R. Walker in place. Walker’s decision remains on hold pending a separate appeal to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
