The latest effort by the right wing opponnets of same-sex marriage in California have lost another one.

As reported earlier this week, the Pacific Justice Institute went to court in an attempt to force Governor Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Brown to defend Prop. 8. The Governor is the named defendant, but both he and Brown have refused to defend Prop. 8. The supporters of Prop. 8 are worried about their standing to appeal the case, hence, this legal “Hail Mary.”

It didn’t work.

Today, the California Court of Appeals, Third Circuit, rejected the Pacific Justice Institute’s suit.
