Gay Legal Eagles Seek Role in California Federal Suit

07/16/09 San Francisco Bay Times (source: Out For Justice)

In this opinion article, Ann Rostow explains why the ACLU, the National Center for Lesbian, and Lambda Legal have decided to intervene in the Perry case on behalf of other parties, when these organizations had previously opposed the filing of this lawsuit:
The first conflict between the gay groups and the Olson/Boies team was resolved when the lawsuit became a fait accompli. Now the conflict concerns strategy and the best road to victory. The gay groups want to take Judge Walker up on his invitation to beef up the record, and they want to address the courts within the unique legal context of California rather than attempting to end marriage discrimination forever. The Olson/Boies team wants to zip up to the Supreme Court and make an all or nothing stand.
