The Defense rests in Prop. 8 trial

In San Francisco today, the defense has rested after calling only two witnesses. The first witness, Kenneth Miller, didn’t work out so well. Nor did this one. According to Brian Leubitz, today’s witness, Davi Blankenhorn was an “absolute disaster”:

He had no credibility with the Judge, and his continued failure to answer questions won’t look good on a written record either.

So, the anti-gay side is 0 for 2 on witnesses.

The judge is going to take some time to review the evidence before closing arguments. So, the trial is in recess until late February or early March.
