22 Dec Kenneth Starr to Defend Prop. 8 Before CA. Supreme Court
Kenneth W. Starr, the former U.S. Solicitor General who led the inquiry into President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica L. Lewinsky, will argue the case in favor of upholding a ban on gay marriage before the California Supreme Court.
Starr was today named lead counsel for the official proponents of Proposition 8. This afternoon, the group filed court briefs defending the legality of the proposition, which was approved by 52% of California voters last month throwing into question thousands of marriages performed during the five months the practice was legal in the state.
UFI President, Beverly Rice had good things to say about the addition to the Yes-On-8 team, “Ken Starr’s expertise in arguing cases before the U.S. Supreme Court will give us a strong voice in our efforts to persuade the CA Supreme Court. He is a brilliant legal thinker and will be a great asset to our team.”
