In a constitutional democracy, it is the role of the courts to determine and resolve such questions. To the extent that Plaintiffs have stated a justiciable controversy, setting forth federal constitutional challenges to Proposition 8, it is appropriate for the federal courts to determine and resolve those challenges. The Administration also continues to believe that it is in the interest of the People of the State of California to have the federal courts resolve the issues presented by Plaintiffs' complaint as expeditiously as possible. As for the merits of Plaintiffs' claims, the Administration takes no position. The Administration does not intend to present any evidence or argument, either in support of or in opposition to those claims. CASE MANAGEMENT ITEMS LISTED IN COURT'S 8/12/09 ORDER The Court's August 12, 2009, order asked the parties to address four casemanagement topics. The Administration addresses each topic below: 1. Specific Elements of Plaintiffs' Claims and Defendants' Defenses: The Administration will leave it for others to list the specific elements of the claims that Plaintiffs assert. In particular, having asserted those claims, it is incumbent on Plaintiffs to identify the elements of each of their claims. The Administration has not asserted any affirmative defenses, and makes no contention regarding the merit of any defense asserted by any other party in this matter. 2. Admissions and Stipulations: The Administration has not proposed, and does not intend to propose, that the parties enter into any admissions or stipulations. If any of the other parties wishes to propose any admissions or stipulations, the Administration will consider any such proposals. 3. Discovery: The Administration does not intend to conduct any discovery. 3 9 2 . 8 3 . P L E . C a s e . M a n a g e m e n t .
