Gage Raley’s amicus brief denied

9th Circuit Court of Appeals Briefs Prop 8 trial

by Jacob Combs

In a one-page, one-sentence brief, the 9th Circuit has denied Gage Raley’s attempt to file a mysterious amicus brief after the deadline for such filings had passed.  (If you don’t remember Raley’s 60+ page brief, it can be found in full here.)

Not a very surprising outcome, considering how late Raley’s amicus brief was filed.

    Wasnt this denied days ago. I could have sworn that we already discussed the courts denial of this brief in the following old thread;

    Am i wrong or missing something?

    If I remember correctly, the latest info posted here was when AFER filed their objection to it, rather than the court rejecting it.

    Up in the right-hand corner of this order the date is listed as Nov. 3.

    Everyone is correct that this order was issued by the 9th Circuit on Nov 3. The confusion occurred because the 9th Circuit sends copies of orders over to the District Court for that court to put the order on its docket. Then the district court email notification system sends a notice that something 'new' has been placed on the District Court docket.

    OK, who here other than me is thinking that Mr Raley thinks the only thing wrong with his submitted work was its untimeliness?

    I'm tending to think Mr. Raley pulled himself a nice publicity stunt and nothing more, negative publicity and controversy being the best forms of advertisement when you want to sell your product. After all, his own work is forthcoming…
