Would a future California governor who was for Proposition 8 have legal standing to challenge the District Court's decision overturning Proposition 8?
1 Answer from Attorneys
No. There are deadlines to bring such a challenge. The deadline for this particular decision passed years ago. The state made a conscious -- and, in my view, wise -- decision to let the deadline pass.
The state's legal standing is not reset when a new governor takes office. The decision to accept Judge Walker's ruling was California's, not just a particular administration's.
