Bush vs. Gore Litigators File Prop 8 Case

Ted Olson and David Boies, who faced each other in the Bush vs. Gore recount, have filed a federal lawsuit that seeks to invalidate Prop 8 on the grounds that it violates constitutional guarantees of due process and equal protection.

They plan to appear at a press conference tomorrow morning in downtown Los Angeles to announce the case. They also are seeking a preliminary injunction against Prop 8 in U.S. District Court until the case is resolved.

The case is a project of a newly group, the American Foundation for Equal Rights, which will be led by political consultant Chad Griffin.
