A federal appeals court judge laid into Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia for his “obsession” with the Court’s Obergefell ruling, which in June granted marriage equality rights to same-sex couples.
Judge Richard Posner, of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, became something of a folk hero to the LGBT community after he ripped arguments for bans on same-sex marriage last year, according to the LGBT-oriented blog Towleroad. This week, Posner gained hero status again with an op-ed in the New York Times bashing Scalia for hypocrisy in opposing marriage equality.
He noted that Scalia described the Obergefell ruling as the end of democracy because the Supreme Court overruled public opinion.
