California Supreme Court To Hear Prop 8 Case On Sept. 6

The California Supreme Court announced yesterday that it will hear oral arguments on Sept. 6 in a case that could effectively allow Judge Vaughn Walker’s decision striking down the unconstitutional ballot initiative to go into effect. Coincidentally, because this is the first oral argument date after judicial nominee Goodwin Liu’s Aug. 31 confirmation vote, it could also wind up being the first case Liu hears as a justice.
