Schwarzenegger decides against defending Prop. 8 in federal court

06/18/09 LA Times:

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has declined to defend the constitutionality of Proposition 8, telling a San Francisco judge that the legality of the anti-gay marriage measure is for the courts to decide. The governor's decision to remain neutral in a federal challenge to Proposition 8 [ Perry et al v. Schwarzenegger et al., (N.D.Cal. 3:09-cv-02292, filed May 22, 2009)] means no statewide official will be defending the measure in federal court.
