Bush v. Gore attorneys to challenge Prop. 8 in federal court
The two attorneys who opposed each other in the 2000 Florida recount battle between George Bush and Al Gore have joined forces to overturn California's ban on same-sex marriage. In response to today's California Supreme Court ruling upholding Proposition 8, Ted Olsen, who represented Bush, and David Boies, who represented Gore, said they'll challenge the ban in federal court. The attorneys will hold a press conference tomorrow morning at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
