Next stop, state court, there's got to be something to sue over, or else no one will pay us to be lawyers defending their freedom to give us money to defend their freedom to keep this perpetually in the courts until your money runs out or we have made enough to retire. Our next move will be determined by the amount of money we raise with our next panicked email to you begging for alms. Our getting the rug pulled out from under us on standing might be good for a go.

This guy ought to be disbarred for gross incompetence for making a statement like that. This most assuredly IS over. A federal court CAN declare a portion of a state constitution (federally) unconstitutional, and the appeal is OPTIONAL! No appeal means that the initial federal court decision stands, and that is what the USSC decided, that no appeal occurred, since the people filing the appeal did not have standing. Prop 8 is DEAD!

Ummm, it is obvious that this man is unaware that Judge Walker's ruling is where Prop 8 was ruled UNCONSTITUTIONAL.......and the 9th has EVERY right to lift their stay!!!

It appears that the proponents may try to ask the CSSC to intervene and halt the issuing of marriage licenses, but that ain't gonna happen either!!!

By the way, through the weekend.......563 Same-Sex Couples got legally married in California again......adding to the 18,000 already married!!!

I agree. But apparently his clients will NOT accept the FACT that they have NO STANDING to bring any petitions or actions in ANY court in the U.S.

A disclaimer about the source, this article is on NewsMax, we are not among its typical readers. The only thing he needs to convince them of is to send more money and being realistic and factually accurate would probably get in the way of that.

WOW!! Talk about MILKING something for cash!! "We are going to do SOMETHING, but we can't tell you what it is yet, but we ARE going to work toward SOME hate-based attack on the gays...."

The only thing missing is, "Send in your contributions NOW to keep us fat and happy while we feed you lies and false hope."

Absolutely!! I've learned more about the law from reading Topix than it sounds like this guys knows.

*BUT*.... his knowledge of the law isn't the point here. He's banking on his donor base being the idiots that they obviously are, buying into his "it's not over yet!" cry, and getting them to send in more cash so he doesn't have to get a real job--one where he'll be held accountable by someone for his actions.

Unbelievable.
