Olson-Boies in court Monday

David Boies will be arguing the issue of standing during oral argument in the Proposition 8 case Monday in a federal appeals court. Boies is co-lead counsel of the legal team challenging California’s same-sex marriage ban, along with another prominent attorney, Ted Olson. Olson will be arguing the merits of the lower court decision that found the ban unconstitutional.

The legal team defending Proposition 8, headed by attorney Charles Cooper, did not respond to requests for information about who will be arguing the merits and the standing issue for them.

Meanwhile, C-SPAN has announced that it will carry the argument live on its C-SPAN 1 channel. Arguments begin at 10 a.m. Pacific time and are expected to conclude at approximately 12:30 p.m.
