San Francisco Files Motion to Intervene in Prop 8 Case

The City and County of San Francisco files a brief with the court requesting to intervene in the case as a plaintiff against Prop 8.  San Francisco notes that it was the lead plaintiff in previous litigation regarding marriage equality in state court, and argues that the enforcement of Prop 8 harms both the citizens of San Francisco and the city itself, “which must absorb the financial, social, and public health consequences associated with the enforcement of this discriminatory law.”  San Francisco stresses its long-standing commitment to achieving full equality for LGBT citizens and families, and claims that its involvement in the case “will add a unique local government perspective.”
