Proposition 8 Amicus Briefs

The amicus briefs in the Proposition 8 cases are starting to come in. Here is the first, from the Beverly Hills Bar Association. Here is one from six Professors of Law in support of Prop. 8; here is one from various labor organizations against the measure; here is one on the same side from a group of Sacramento lawyers; and here is a brief filed by Equal Rights Advocates. None of these briefs are currently available on the California Supreme Court's web-site.

ps. Here are three more: one from the Family Research Council; one from the "Issues4Life Foundation"; and one (this one supporting Petitioners) from Archbishop Mark Steven Shirilau. And three more: one from the League of Women Voters and one from Jewish Family Services of Los Angeles, both supporting Petitioners, and one from the Eagle Forum, supporting Prop. 8.

pps. They keep coming in. Here's one from Catholic Answers, one from Professors of Family Law, one from California Legislators and one from the Anti-Defamation League, all supporting Petitioners. The brief filed by NOW is here; the brief filed by the California Council of Churches is here; and the brief filed by the California Labor Federation is here; the brief filed by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce and a number of businesses, including Google, is here. All of these support petitioners, too. Here is the brief filed by the Church of the Messiah; here is the brief filed by the Campaign for California Families; and here is the brief filed by the American Center for Law and Justice, which support Prop. 8.

Finally, here is an article from the San Francisco Chronicle about the flood of amicus briefs.
