Two days ago i posted about the christian conservative legal group, The Pacific Justice Institute petitioned the 3rd District Court of Appeals in Sacramento to force Gov. Schwarzenegger and AG. Jerry brown to defend Prop 8 hate in court. Well they were btich slapped to the curb.
The 3rd District Court of Appeal on Wednesday denied a conservative legal group’s request to force the officials to defend voter-approved Proposition 8.
Presiding Justice Arthur Scotland did not explain why the appeals court turned down the request filed two days earlier by the Pacific Justice Institute.
The institute now plans to take the matter to the California Supreme Court, Chief Counsel Kevin Snider said Thursday.
“We are disappointed that the appellate court showed indecisiveness in trying to prevent a constitutional crisis,” Snider said. “They didn’t want to deal with it.”
The institute maintains the attorney general and governor have the duty to uphold all laws, including those passed by voters.
The coalition of conservative and religious groups that sponsored the ban has appealed the ruling by Walker. But doubts have been raised about whether its members have authority to do so because as ordinary citizens they are not responsible for enforcing marriage laws.
Twenty-seven members of the California Assembly sent Schwarzenegger a letter this week urging the governor to bring an appeal if Brown will not.
The time, money and energy these haters waste on something that does not affect them at all. It's simple, if you don't want gay marriage, then don't marry a gay person...People can we use our brains here... ;)
