Prop. 8 defenders: Uphold marriage, let public debate | Alliance Defending Freedom
ProtectMarriage.com legal team files opening brief with U.S. Supreme Court
WASHINGTON — Defenders of California’s marriage amendment filed their opening brief with the U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday. The brief argues that the high court should affirm the validity and rational basis of the amendment and refuse demands for a judicially-imposed end to the robust, ongoing public debate about marriage.
Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys are part of the legal team for ProtectMarriage.com, the banner organization for the official proponents and campaign committee of Proposition 8, which California voters approved in 2008. Last month, the Supreme Court agreed to review Hollingsworth v. Perry, the federal lawsuit attacking the amendment.
