Vaughn Walker, the federal judge who in August delivered a landmark ruling affirming the right of same-sex couples in California to marry, will begin teaching a class at U.C. Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law after he retires at the end of this year.
Walker's ruling that Proposition 8 -- the California ballot initiative that banned gay marriage in 2008 -- was unconstitutional came in a very interesting case (now on appeal). To judge from the press release put out by Berkeley, the class he is slated to co-teach next semester won't be so exciting. Unless, of course, sitting through months of instruction in something called "Strategic Decisionmaking in Aggregate and Complex Litigation" is your idea of life in the fast lane.
