Hours after opponents of Prop. 8 submitted their arguments against allowing Imperial County's new Clerk to intervene in the case, a counter-filing by attorneys for Protect Marriage.com urged the 9th Circuit to grant their request -- if Prop. 8 backers are determined by the court not have legal standing to do so.
Their filing reads in part: "Proponents support the motion for the reasons stated by Imperial County and because Imperial County has acted promptly to cure the defect identified by the panel with respect to Imperial County’s standing (the fact that the County’s Clerk was not seeking to intervene), a defect that was first identified at oral argument."
It would have been more interesting/likely if Chuck Storey had been elected before the deadline to intervene passed.
