via zimbio Today, yet another filing from those in favor of gay marriage in Florida who have enacted the Ruvin case. It's pretty lengthy but worth the read. Effectively what the attorneys involved are saying is that, like the Prop 8 supporters in California who lost last year in the Supreme Court, John Stemberger and the made up "Democratic" groups trying to delay the inevitable don't have a leg to stand on in their motion to intervene in the state's case. The state, the filing says, has its own legal department, thank you very much. And Stemberger et. al. stand to lose nothing should gay marriage be made legal in Florida. They lost their stake when Amendment 2 became law after the 2008 general election. Now it's just a law. And as such, nobody is in direct control of it. The case comes before a judge next Wednesday. Sorry about your baby and your bathwater, John. But you sure do look creepy in a Boy Scout uniform. Read the filing below:
