UPDATED – SEE THE COMPLETE BRIEF [of Perry plaintiffs] AND WITNESS LIST AT THE END OF THE POST.12/08/09 KTUV.com / Bay City News:
Late Monday, Ted Olson, David Boies and the team of lawyers representing two California couples in a federal lawsuit seeking to overturn Prop 8, filed a brief explaining their position and a list of witnesses they may call during the trial, set for a nonjury trial Jan. 18.
In the brief, they told U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker that they intend to prove that Prop 8 is ”irrational, indefensible and unconstitutional.”
Proposition 8 supporters in an opposing trial brief claimed there are numerous reasons for a traditional definition of marriage. One of the reasons, their lawyers wrote, is "promoting and regulating naturally procreative relationships between men and women to provide for the nurture and upbringing of the next generation."I have updated my list of Perry filings later today to include a link to the brief of Prop. 8 proponents. Thanks to California attorney Rick Xiao and Phillip Minton of Unite the Fight for their help.
