波斯纳法官“无情杀戮”反同性恋婚姻主张

波斯纳法官“无情杀戮”反同性恋婚姻主张

Above the Law 的报道 “Judge Posner’s Blistering Benchslaps At The Same-Sex Marriage Arguments”

As we mentioned in Morning Docket and on Twitter, yesterday’s Seventh Circuit arguments weren’t fun for the defenders of Wisconsin and Indiana’s same-sex marriage bans. The three judges, especially Judge Richard Posner, were tough — very tough.

Chris Geidner of BuzzFeed, a leading chronicler of marriage-equality litigation, described the proceedings as “the most lopsided arguments over marriage bans at a federal appeals court this year.” Ian Millhiser of ThinkProgress called it “a bloodbath.”

That’s no exaggeration. Let’s check out the specifics….

A Seventh Circuit panel consisting of Judge Richard Posner, Judge Ann Claire Williams, and Judge David F. Hamilton heard argument on Tuesday in two cases: Baskin v. Bogan, a challenge to Indiana’s statutory ban on same-sex marriage, and Wolf v. Walker, a challenge to Wisconsin’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. You can listen to the arguments here (Baskin) and here (Wolf).

除了这篇报道,Slate 的报道 “Listen to a Conservative Judge Brutally Destroy Arguments Against Gay Marriage” 也值得一看,尤其是如果您没有时间听全部庭审录音的话。它剪辑出了十段不长的录音,是波斯纳法官的一些重要的“杀戮”片段。非常精彩,且有娱乐性。必听!
