Right wingers trying to force CA’s Gov. and AG to defend Prop. 8

So, the people who support Prop. 8 have gone to state court in an effort to force California’s Governor and Attorney General to defend the ban on same-sex marriage in federal court:

A conservative legal group is trying to force Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown to defend California’s gay marriage ban in court.

The Pacific Justice Institute petitioned the 3rd District Court of Appeal in Sacramento on Monday for an emergency order that would require state officials to appeal a ruling that overturned Proposition 8.

Seems to indicate the proponents of Prop. 8 are a bit freaked over their standing in the case.

For a thorough discussion of the standing issue, check out the post from USC Constitutional Law Professor David Cruz titled, Do the Prop 8 Proponents Have Standing to Appeal?
