U.S. judge refuses Prop. 8 backers' request to dismiss gay-marriage case - San Jose Mercury News

U.S. judge refuses Prop. 8 backers' request to dismiss gay-marriage case - San Jose Mercury News:
"SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge on Wednesday refused to dismiss a legal challenge to Proposition 8, concluding that the ongoing courtroom battle over California's voter-approved ban on gay marriage must be resolved in a full-blown trial."

I want to see how Olson and Boise turns out. Part of me is leery, and part of me is excited. I don't want a bad precedent set... yet I'm intrigued by our prospects. Ultimately, though, LGBT law groups need to be heavily involved in this. Its our lives at stake. If Olson and Boise lose this, nothing changes for them. However, everything is thrown out of whack for the rest of us. Allowing LGBT law groups to be heavily invested in this case is crucial.
