Prop 8 case heads to CA highest court Sept. 6

SAN FRANCISCO

The hearing, set for Sept. 6, is to consider whether ballot initiative sponsors have authority to fight court rulings on their measures if the governor and attorney general refuse to appeal.

The question is pivotal to the future of the gay marriage ban because former /*Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger*/ and /*Gov. Jerry Brown*/, in his previous role as attorney general, refused to challenge a federal court ruling that struck down the law as a civil rights violation.
