As we reported yesterday, the homophobes who support Prop. 8 filed a motion to overturn the Prop. 8 decision because Judge Walker had a boyfriend. It's pretty despicable, but shows their level of desperation. Just found out that there will be an expedited hearing on their motion held in the courtroom of Judge James Ware, United States District Chief Judge on June 13. Here's the notice:

Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 62.1(a), Defendant-Intervenors’ have filed a Motion to Vacate Judgment. (See Docket Item No. 768.) Defendant-Intervenors have requested a hearing on July 11, 2011. Due to the nature of the Motion, the Court finds good cause to expedite and specially set a hearing on the Motion. Accordingly, the Court advances the hearing to June 13, 2011 at 9 a.m. The parties shall comply with the following briefing schedule:

(1) On or before May 13, 2011, any party desiring to do so, shall file their Opposition to the Motion;

(2) On or before May 23, 2011, any party desiring to do so, shall file their Reply. In their papers, the parties shall address the specific procedural posture of this case and how the Court should dispose of this Motion under Fed. R. Civ. P. 62.1(a).
Here's my reply: the court should opt for Fed. R. Civ. P. 62.1(a)(2): deny the motion.
