There was no judicial tyranny here. There WAS however, tyranny by a majority in contradiction to Constitutional protections from such a thing. Prop. 8 is one such violation, and it's being used to enshrine discrimination against a specific minority as well. The case was lost on lack of evidence, facts and the proof that 8 is an animus based law that protects nothing. READ the transcripts and you'd know that. It was 8's defenders that kept that trial from public view, claiming such public exposure would make them a target. What BS, since they were all over the country making public appearances. But since a court requires the truth, that's when they got all shy about it. No case, no evidence, no RATIONAL basis to uphold such bad law.
