Public Opinion Could Influence Judges

Over the weekend, I posted links to the news about encouraging trends in both local and national polls in regards to recognition of same-sex couples.

A Harvard law professor wrote in the Los Angeles Times that Supreme Court justices could be swayed by these trends, especially if they want to be looked back on well by future generations. The opinions of the sitting justices on this issue is a matter of great intrigue, given that most observers expect thatĀ the issue is likely to head to the Supreme Court.
