Earlier today, the proponents of Prop 8 suggested consolidation of main appeal regarding Judge Walker’s verdict with the appeal of Judge Ware’s denial to vacate Judge Walker’s decision based on his sexual orientation.
The plaintiffs in the case (Perry, Stier et al and their attorneys) responded to that request. Plaintiffs essentially said “that’s fine, as long it doesn’t delay the case any more than it has already been,” and suggested oral arguments for December 8th if the request were to be granted, which is the same date scheduled for the appeal regarding Judge Ware’s order to release the Prop 8 tapes.
