As indicated on the Notice of Errata submitted by San Francisco as Document Number 413, the Corrected Brief corrects typographical errors to heading numbers that appeared on pages (i) and 11 of San Francisco's original Response. Additionally, at page 15, the Corrected Response replaces the text "These cases, too, are consistent with the panel decision" with "See also Diaz v. Brewer, 656 F.3d 1008 (9th Cir. 2011) (elimination of benefits for same-sex partners lacked rational basis)." The Corrected Brief is substantially the same as the original brief and adds no new arguments or supporting points, and it is offered for filing within this Court's deadline for responding to Defendant-IntervenorAppellant's Petition for Rehearing En Banc. See Order, ECF Doc. No. 408. Appellants and plaintiffs-appellees have advised the Court that they do not oppose this motion. San Francisco therefore respectfully requests that the Court accept its Corrected Brief for filing. Dated: March 5, 2012 Respectfully submitted, DENNIS J. HERRERA City Attorney THERESE M.
