As much as he might have liked to see his landmark ruling favoring same-sex marriage stand, California Chief Justice Ronald George knew he was doing the "right thing" when he upheld Proposition 8 late last month. In an interview Friday, he said, "I've been on the bench for 37 years and have had to let the law take me where it had to, regardless of my own personal views." He spoke about his reasoning and the reaction it produced, and noted that the public has the option of returning to the ballot box if it wishes.
