The San Jose Mercury News quotes Professor Michael Wald about a case in front of the California Supreme Court "reviewing a ban on gay marriage, arguably one of the state's most important civil rights cases since 1948, when the court became the first in the nation to outlaw a ban on interracial marriage."

Professor Wald comments about the court's position on the current case: "I suspect the court is divided on it and it is hard to figure out where they'll come out," said Michael Wald, a Stanford University law professor.
