CA Attorney General Brown argue in favor, Gov. Schwarzenegger neutral on idea that state’s Prop. 8 violates US Constitution

LA Times:

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker has scheduled a July 2 hearing on arguments whether Proposition 8 should be blocked pending a trial on its constitutionality.

The state has opposed an injunction on the grounds that it could create legal chaos if the measure is eventually upheld. The federal lawsuit was filed shortly before the California Supreme Court rejected challenges to the measure on state constitutional grounds. Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown has argued that Proposition 8 violates the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

He also argued unsuccessfully in state court that the measure violated the California Constitution.
