Law professor Nan Hunter: "Conservative group appeals denial of intervention" in Perry case

09/04/09 hunter of justice, by law professor Nan Hunter:

As Professor Hunter observes, Yes on 8 successfully opposed the Campaign for California Families (CCF) when it sought to participate in Strauss v. Horton, 46 Cal.4th 364 (2009). The latest contest concerns whether CCF may participate in the Perry case. Judge Vaugn Walker denied its motion to intervene, but CCF has filed a notice of appeal. Will Yes on 8 oppose the appeal?

The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) is co-counsel for Yes on 8 in Perry. ADF has a history of conflict with Liberty Counsel, which represents CCF. Legal strategy has divided the legal advocacy groups, just as it has divided the parties they represent. I see in these divisions the flip side of divisions over legal strategy between counsel for Perry plaintiffs and counsel for parties seeking to join the case as plaintiffs.
