Court Sets Schedule for Prop. 8 Oral Arguments

Court Sets Schedule for Prop. 8 Oral Arguments


The U.S. court of appeals for the ninth circuit announced Monday that oral arguments set for December 6 in the Proposition 8 lawsuit will begin with the question of whether supporters of the antigay California ballot measure have standing to appeal the case.

The court will divide oral arguments into two hour-long sessions.

The first hour will center on the issue of standing: Antigay groups who defended Prop. 8 in court will be asked to argue why they have the right to appeal, as will representatives from Imperial County, which has attempted to intervene in the suit.

The second hour will be devoted to arguments on the constitutionality of Prop. 8, which was passed by voters in 2008 and struck down by U.S. district judge Vaughn Walker in August.
