What I will be watching for
In today’s hearing, I will be watching for the Marriage Redefiners to try to distinguish their case. That is, will they try to come up with some argument that distinguishes the Proponents of Prop 8 from Proponents of other potential ballot initiatives. If they make no attempt to do that, we might conclude that they don’t care whether they destroy the initiative process. They just want what they want, and they don’t care about collateral damage.
On the other hand, if they do make an effort to limit the impact of their request to Prop 8 and only Prop 8, that would at least show some good faith on their part.
I will be watching.
