Prop 8 hearing gets date; now to turn that date into a marriage

by Jeremy Hooper

We have a timeline, kids. Or at least the first part of what will surely be a lengthy one:

San Francisco, CA – Today the Supreme Court of California announced that the hearing date for Perry v. Brown will be on Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at 10:00AM. The date announced is the very first day of the court’s fall calendar. The court will hear oral arguments on a question of whether under state law proponents of initiatives have standing to defend their initiatives when they are challenged in court. The question was certified to them by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit earlier this year.

A slow process, but one with focus. With luck, we'll win this thing at least a few years before the case would need be changed to Perry v. Bieber.
