Attorney General Urges Court to Review Prop 8 Cases
California Attorney General Jerry Brown today urged the California Supreme Court to review and resolve the Prop 8 cases "promptly." Brown, who believes that same-sex marriages performed between June 17 and November 4, 2008 remain valid and will be upheld by the Court, sides with Prop 8's opposition. However, whatever the outcome of the court will be, Brown is not interested in any temporary solutions: “the public interest would be best served not by issuing a temporary stay, but by an expedited resolution of the important issues raised by the petitions.”
