Prop 8 Hearing: Full Speed Ahead

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker failed to grant an injunction to halt Prop 8, but he did move to "fast-track" the lawsuit.

He set Aug. 7 as the date that the parties have to file "case management proposals," along with a guide with how they believe the case should proceed. The next hearing is scheduled for Aug. 19.

One thing I did not mention the other day: Because California Atty. General Jerry Brown already has stated that he believes that the proposition is unconstitutional, that left a dearth of defendants. So Walker granted the initiative's backers the ability to "intervene" in the case to defend Prop 8.
