Justice Kennedy’s the One to Watch on Gay Marriage Test

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy eventually will get his hands on California’s gay marriage ban.

That’s when the landmark case will really get interesting.

Kennedy’s the one to watch, even if his name appears nowhere in a trial judge’s 138-page opinion striking down California’s Proposition 8 ban on gay marriages. Nonetheless, Kennedy’s previous decisions were cited 16 times in U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker’s ruling that Proposition 8 violates the Constitution.

Walker’s citations to Kennedy foreshadow the highly anticipated showdown that’s to come when the Supreme Court finally considers gay marriage.
