I know it's not polite to speak ill of the dead, especially of a civil rights hero but IMO, Reinhardt (and Ginsburg I fear) were foolish in not stepping down when they had a chance.
Reinhart's replacement would have been easily confirmed while Democrats still had control of the Senate and you can be sure whomever Pence and Leonard Leo come up with to replace him now, he/she will be a vicious anti-LGBT hack.
I get wanting to stay on as long as you can for fear your replacement won't be as liberal but sometimes you can lose sight of the greater good.
I dread what will become of the 9th Circuit soon, I truly do.

Of all the people Trump will get to replace, this one sickens me the most, especially since unlike some of the other judges, this will be a conservative replacing a liberal, akin to Marshal/Thomas.

Jeff Landry has a gay brother too.
Makes him all the more vile.

In other words, he's doing what Republicans here in the U.S. have done.
Makes me sick.

Why I'm glad we got the 6th Circuit ruling when we did.
No reason to wait for the 8th Circuit panel(which had a judge who ruled against us before) to delay justice another year.

It was arguably the most conservative Circuit Court in the country before Trump got his judges on there.
Even worse now.
There is no way we will get a favorable ruling out of this circuit, none.

Lynch's argument was basically the same as the Democratic judge he replaced, Chester Straub who wanted DOMA upheld in telling us that we're supposed to leave our rights up to a legislative body that had made it clear they won't do a damn thing to help us.
That seat must have a bigotry clause attached to it.
