SF City Attorney Reply Brief on Behalf of Local Governments, Married Couples Defends Principles of Judicial Independence, Argues Against Retroactivity

01/05/09 SF City Attorney Press Release: "City Attorney Dennis Herrera today filed a reply brief that sharply challenges arguments by lawyers for the Proposition 8 political campaign that even the slimmest of electoral majorities in California may enact discriminatory amendments to the state constitution that would render meaningless such foundational principles as equality, inalienable rights and judicial independence." Amy Margolin, an appellate practitioner at Howard Rice, summarizes the argument against retroactive application of Prop. 8 if the Court upholds it.
