Legal blog on Prop 8

Legal blog on Prop 8

It’s funny at times how the internet works. We all take it for granted that we can see stuff from all the over world, but sometimes when it happens, it’s still mindblowing.

That’s what happened after I wrote this post about the legal challenge to Proposition 8 (the referendum which overturned the ability of same sex couples to marry in California). I had seen that there had been an intellectual discussion amongst lawyers about whether or not the challenge would succeed, which prompted me to write the post.

Then Michael Ginsborg commented on the post. It turns out that Michael, a law librarian from San Francisco, writes a blog about the legal discussion on Prop 8. I will now be following his blog, Legal Commentary on Proposition 8 with interest.
