U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in Sacramento Thursday, moments before the dedication of a library and statue in his honor at the federal courthouse.

He’s not only from California.  Justice Anthony Kennedy’s U.S. Supreme Court rulings – past and future – are felt in California.  He wrote the ruling in a case involving the state’s overcrowded prisons, and many observers feel the fate of Proposition 8 is in his hands.  

He returned to his hometown of Sacramento this week for the opening of the Justice Anthony M. Kennedy Library and Learning Center at the federal courthouse.  He sat down Thursday afternoon for an interview with our Capitol Bureau Chief Ben Adler.
