An Open Invitation to Walter Dellinger on Prop 8 Standing

by Ed Whelan

Walter Dellinger’s amicus brief contending that Prop 8 proponents lack standing received considerable attention at yesterday’s oral argument. I have explained extensively why I believe that Walter’s argument is wrong.

I hereby extend to Walter and to his counsel of record, Georgetown law professor Irv Gornstein, an open invitation to respond to my critique. (I have also directly communicated this invitation to each of them by e-mail.) I promise, if they wish, to post their response in full on Bench Memos (unless they prefer to publish it somewhere else, in which case I will, at the very least, link to it).
