2PER CURIAM.The County of Imperial, its Board of Supervisors, and a Deputy Clerk for theCounty appeal the denial of their motion to intervene in this case concerning theconstitutionality under the United States Constitution of Article I, section 7.5 of theCalifornia Constitution (“Proposition 8”). Concurrently, they assert their standingto appeal on the merits the district court order holding Proposition 8 to beunconstitutional. We affirm the denial of the intervention motion, although ondifferent grounds from those relied upon by the district court, and correspondinglywe dismiss the appeal on the merits for lack of standing. This decision, of course,does not affect the standing or the separate appeal of the official proponents of Proposition 8.
