Thursday Must Read

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. UC Berkeley officials bungled their response to student protests late last year, the Chron and CoCo Times report, citing a newly released UC-commissioned study. The hard-hitting report found that Cal officials didn’t take the protest over fee hikes seriously at first, thereby angering students, and then campus police seriously overreacted, further inflaming the situation.

2. A federal judge overseeing the Prop. 8 trial seemed skeptical of the claims by gay-marriage opponents that the primary reason for marriage is procreation, the Chron reports. Judge Vaughn Walker also appeared to be mystified that gay-marriage opponents had only called two witnesses to bolster their case, according to the Mercury News.
