USA, California: Attorney General Urges State Supreme Court to Deny Request to Block Weddings

California Attorney General Kamala HarrisAttorney General Kamala Harris wasted no time filing a brief urging the state Supreme Court to deny the San Diego county clerk’s requests to block gay weddings in the state. AFER reports:

Attorney General Harris’s office says the California Supreme Court should deny the request “because [the] petitioner [County Clerk Dronenberg] has no likelihood of success on the merits.” On Friday, the San Diego County Clerk filed two requests with the California Supreme Court, similar to complaints filed by the Prop. 8 Proponents the week before. One seeks to immediately stop marriages in California, the other seeks to limit the scope of the historic federal court decision that ruled Prop. 8 unconstitutional.

Harris squeaked into office last November and we are so lucky she did – she’s been a staunch ally of the LGBT community for years.
