Gay Marriage Scorecard

Four years ago, Gavin Newsom opened the door. Today, the California State Supreme Court sealed the deal.

Pundits hoping to assign blame in overturn of the State's ban against gay marriages are going to be profoundly disappointed. Republican lite Arnie's appointment voted AGAINST the overturning of the 2000 initiative banning gay marriage. But two appointments of Republican Governor Wilson and one of Republican Governor Deukmejian joined the sole Democratic appointment on the SC in overturning the ban.
  • Ronald M. George, (1991), Chief Justice (Wilson - R) FOR
  • Marvin R. Baxter, (1991), Associate Justice (Wilson - R) AGAINST
  • Ming W. Chin, (1996), Associate Justice (Wilson - R) AGAINST
  • Carol A. Corrigan, (2006), Associate Justice (Schwarzenegger - R) AGAINST
  • Joyce L. Kennard, (1989), Associate Justice (Deukmejian - R) FOR
  • Carlos R. Moreno, (2001), Associate Justice (Davis - D) FOR
  • Kathryn Mickle Werdegar, (1994), Associate Justice (Wilson - R) FOR
It should be hard to call a Court "activist" when six of seven judges were appointed by Republicans.
