From today's San Francisco Chronicle:
Brown now fights Prop. 8 in federal court
Bob Egelko, Chronicle Staff Writer
Friday, June 12,
"Attorney General Jerry Brown, who tried to persuade the state Supreme Court to overturn California's ban on same-sex marriage, took the same position in federal court Friday, saying Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equality....
Two same-sex couples, represented by attorneys Theodore Olson and David Boies -
the courtroom adversaries in the Bush vs. Gore case that decided the 2000
presidential election - challenged Prop. 8 in federal court on May 22, four days
before the state's high court upheld it....
Brown's refusal to support Prop. 8 means that the conservative Christian groups who sponsored Prop. 8 will defend it in federal court, as they did in the state Supreme Court."
That's fine, since the attorneys for the "Conservative Christian Groups" (53% of the population) did an excellent job before the California Supreme Court. I can't wait to see this case before the U.S. Supreme Court!
