ww131107George_bk.jpgAs a young lawyer, Ronald George defended capital punishment before the US Supreme Court. As a superior court judge, he spent two years conducting the trial of Hillside Strangler Angelo Buono. As Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, he cast the deciding vote to legalize same-sex marriage — then wrote the opinion upholding Proposition 8, which restored the ban on that same practice. Those stories and more make up his 800-page oral history, Chief: The Quest for Justice in California.
