Remember this the next time a politician says they have to defend existing law because "it's the law"

Obviously, given the following, they have discretion.

"Interestingly, counsel for plaintiffs in the [Prop. 8] case are outside the usual LGBT movement, but are Theodore Olsen and David Boies, the attorneys who represented Bush and Gore respectively in Bush v. Gore. Also interestingly, the state of California is not defending the lawsuit (Governor Schwarzenegger has taken no position and Attorney General Jerry Brown supports the plaintiffs). California’s position is therefore being argued by intervenors including, who the trial judge described as the “proponents” of Proposition 8."
