Tuesday Must Read: Prop 8 Backers Say Gay Judge Should Have Disqualified Himself; Russo Spends $20,000 on Third Oakland Gang Injunction

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. Anti-gay-marriage forces are attempting to overturn a federal court decision that invalidated Prop 8, arguing that Judge Vaughn Walker should have recused himself from the case because he is gay and would be able to marry his longtime partner if his ruling is upheld, according to several news outlets. Proposition 8 backers have asked another federal judge to throw out Walker’s ruling that the anti-gay-marriage law was unconstitutional. However, gay marriage supporters say the effort is desperate and won’t work, because it’s akin to asking minority or female judges to disqualify themselves from cases involving racial or gender discrimination.
