Can Yes on 8 Defend Prop in Court?

Can Yes on 8 Defend Prop in Court?


The California supreme court will soon decide whether the sponsors behind Proposition 8 have standing to defend the ballot measure.

The ninth U.S. circuit court of appeals asked the California supreme court for its opinion on the matter last month, since the newly inaugurated state officials who normally would defend the case have declined to do so. The three-judge panel said they would not move forward on the case until they understood whether the state supreme court, which ruled on Proposition 8 in 2010, would consider the organizers behind Yes on 8 to defend the case.

California supreme court chief justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said the the court will decide on the fate of the case "as early as next week," according to theLos Angeles Times.
