New Filings In Proposition 8 Cases

The Attorney General has filed preliminary oppositions in the Proposition 8 cases. (The one in Strauss is here.) Interestingly, the AG does not take a position on the merits, but simply urges the Court to (a) hear the case and (b) deny a stay. Proposed intervenors have also filed a preliminary opposition; here's the one in Strauss. I would expect the Court to rule on the stay and issue a briefing schedule pretty soon, perhaps after this Wednesday's conference.
