"At first blush, U.S. District Judge James Ware's decision to unseal videos of the federal trial challenging Proposition 8 would seem to be a victory for truth, justice and open government. But you can't always tell a video by its jacket. The deck was stacked from the start of former U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker's handling of a federal challenge to California's same-sex marriage ban -- and not because he's gay. ... It's his other orders that taint Walker's decision to overturn the 2008 ballot measure -- and his use of the videos as a personal prop." (09/22/11)
