How Equality California and the ACLU Could Hold Up a Prop 8 Ruling

Equality California, Californians Against Eliminating Basic Rights, and the ACLU really don’t want to share their own internal documents as they worked to keep Prop 8 from passing, but if — the defendant in the Perry v. Schwarzenegger case — must do it, then so too must these guys, a U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero judge ruled this month. Which has these groups trying to fight off the push for transparency (or, depending on who you ask, “invasive demands,” since this trio of groups aren’t official plaintiffs in the case), insisting Perry‘s Judge Vaughn Walker decline Spero’s ruling. And if he doesn’t? Then they’ll continue fighting it — which could cause a little delay in Walker issuing that little ruling about whether Prop 8 is unconstitutional.
