Prop 8 events

Judge Reinhardt was asked to recuse himself. He denied.

His wife is a director of the ACLU which has filed briefs in support of the district court's ruling.

The standard for recusal, last I knew, was the appearance of impropriety.

A judge whose wife has taken an active position and filed advocacy briefs with the court creates, imo, actual impropriety for Judge Reinhardt to hear the case. The Chief Justice should reassign him.

I do not trust anyone sleeping with the ACLU! They want to turn the US into another France.
