Pro-8′ers Submit Brief Explaining Why They Have Standing

Posted By on September 21, 2010

Pro-8 Imperial County have filed their brief with the 9th District Appellate court, answering the question as to whether or not they have legal standing to proceed with the appeal of Walker’s Prop 8 Ruling. Among their claims they argue that because Obama likes hetero marriage that should be the standard.

Wow… Here’s our ‘fierce advocate’ President’s words being used against us again. The pro-Prop 8ers are using his statements that he believes only in marriage between a man and a woman as proof that gay marriage doesn’t have to be legal.

They’re also claiming that they have standing on the case because the Imperial County Deputy Clerk is in charge of enforcing Proposition 8 in the county, they have direct authority to appeal Judge Walker’s decision.

    hahahaha, that has got to be the stupidest reason ever…. So…, this time around, the president does’t like gay marriage, so neither should we. That says nothing about the legal standing of their argument, nor the Constitutionality of Prop 8… What happens when the next president supports gay marriage? Can we use that argument? ;) hahahahaha, wow.
