Looking for a post about an awesome judge October 1, 2015 5:16 PM   Subscribe

I am looking for a post I saw a while ago- maybe last summer? Maybe before? In the last five years, probably the last two years. It was about an American judge, an older white man, who was fairly conservative, absolutely demolishing the arguments of a lawyer against.. gay marriage? Some form of gay rights? This judge is known for doing this sort of thing. I think he's a fairly high placed judge somewhere in the middle of America. Thanks!

Are you thinking of the post about the Alabama Supreme Court judge Tom Parker, who "figured out how to dismantle Roe vs Wade"?

Yes! Posner!
Thank you so much!
