Gay rights advocates rip suit to undo Prop. 8

What a complete joke; I'd say it will take all of 10 minutes for a federal Judge to throw this out of federal court since the California Supreme Court is the highest authority on California law, especially the California Constitution.

Here are some clips of the story:

Gay rights advocates Wednesday blasted two veteran attorneys for filing a federal lawsuit seeking to overturn Proposition 8, California's voter-approved same-sex marriage ban, saying the move is premature and could be disastrous for the marriage movement.


The advocates say it took 17 years to undo a 1986 Supreme Court decision that upheld Georgia's sodomy law. An Arkansas court used that law as justification to deny a lesbian mother custody of her children, said Jon Davidson, legal director at Lambda Legal, a national gay rights group.


Still, filing a federal lawsuit at this point "sounds like a silly and rash act," said UC Davis law professor John Oakley, an expert on the federal court system.
