San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera files motion to intervene in Perry v. Schwarzenneger

07/23/09 San Francisco City Attorney press release and motion to intervene:

Having already filed an amicus brief in the Perry case, the San Francisco City Attorney has filed a motion to intervene. Controversy has followed from a motion to intervene by the ACLU, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Lamda Legal Defense. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that
The leader of an organization [Chad Griffin of the American Foundation for Equal Rights] that filed the suit against Proposition 8 has already accused established gay-rights groups of trying to undermine the case and promised to oppose their attempt to intervene. San Francisco raised the stakes Thursday by filing a similar motion with Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker, who has scheduled a hearing for August 19th.
According to Judge Walker's July 13th order, David Boies and Theodore Olson have until August 7th to oppose the motions to intervene.
