California's Proposition 8 Federal Court Challenge Gets Moving; Trial in January


The case against Prop 8, which banned gay marriage in California, is being argued in federal court by the unlikely cross-party team of Ted Olson and David Boies, who were on opposite sides of the Bush vs. Gore election kerfuffle in 2000. Early filings and a status hearing in the case were made this week, with a trial expected in January. 

I have more info, context, and links in this post over at my southern California news and politics blog "City of Angles" at KCET.org.

Michael Moynihan blogged on this case's first announcement. Reagan Republican Tom Campbell wrote for Reason Online on why Republicans should have voted against Prop 8 in the first place.
