(I want to make sure I re-emphasize the first sentence. I do not know the outcome. I can only look to the judgment and hope that what I have here is complete and utter balderdash. As shayera said at dKos today, this is one of those times that I hope I totally screwed up. So, I look to tomorrow optimistically, with complete awareness of the fact that either way we have a long, hard fight in front of us. - promoted by Brian Leubitz)
UPDATE: I've decided to re-title this to reinforce the flimsiness of this stuff. I've gotten word that the clerk was planning on changing roles for some time. So, I'm going wait and see. Only 3 hours left anyway.
I don't traditionally ply in loosely sourced rumors, but here I go. Some troubling news has emerged from the California Supreme Court regarding In re Marriage Cases due to be announced tomorrow. First, Justice Kathryn M. Werdegar's only openly gay law clerk abruptly resigned today. I'm still looking to get additional details on this, but I am told that there was no indication of the resignation prior to today. If you have any further details on this, shoot me an email.
Next, from another source intimately familiar with the case and the Court, I'm hearing that the Court is prepared to take a step that stands in stark contrast to their bold and courageous position in Perez v. Sharp. Specifically, it looks like we might get a decision that dramatically rules against granting individuals the freedom to marry whomever they choose. The total voting correctly could be limited to one justice (if even that) by dissenting from a decision that would be looked back upon as a cop-out at best.
Leadership takes courage. Some have it. Others do not.
