I was right, Reinhardt will be on panel for Prop 8 case

November 29th, 2010

Back in August, after analyzing Judge Walker’s opinion in Perry v. Schwarzenegger–the Prop 8 case (see here and here)–I remarked:

I am certain Judge Reinhardt will write a much better opinion on appeal.

Lo and behold, Judge Reinhardt will sit on the three-judge panel to consider Perry, and will (most likely) write a much better opinion than Walker did.

With 25 Active and 22 Senior Circuit judges in the 9th Circuit, what are the odds Reinhardt sits on this panel?
