Hearing: Speed Bump Unlikely to Derail Proposition 8 Appeal

Christianity Today: ADF attorney Austin Nimocks said that if proponents of a proposition cannot defend it in court, then the state officials could effectively veto propositions. “Voters should not be left without any defense just because their officials refused to defend them,” Nimocks said. “Ultimately, this hearing concerns whether the people of California who voted for Proposition 8 will be defended at all.” Members of the California Supreme Court seemed sympathetic to the ADF’s argument.
