The story behind the Prop8 case

For those legal junkies amongst you, or if you are just an interested layman, this is an outstanding story explaining the logic behind AFER and the Prop8 federal case.   Go read the whole thing!

It was nearly 3:25 P.M. on May 22, 2009--the Friday before Memorial Day weekend--when Enrique Monagas approached the counter at the court clerk's office in San Francisco's Federal Building to file a complaint. Although Monagas tried to appear nonchalant, his heart was pounding.... His instructions were to wait until the last possible moment, and the deadline for presenting new matters was 3:30 p.m. Dressed in his usual casual Friday clothes, Monagas nervously handed over the short stack of papers.
