The author reflects on the significance of the public statements by U.S. Justice Ruth Bader against the Joe versus Wade ruling on pending court rulings on Proposition 8 in California. He notes that Bader gave hints on the Affordable Care Act rulings before they were made. He predicts that the U.S. Supreme Court will issue a very narrow ruling as what commentators suggest. He claims her statement implies that the Court is reluctant to use the California ruling to overturn laws in other states.
