Dennis Hollingsworth, Gail J. Knight, Martin F. Gutierrez, Mark A. Jansson,and ProtectMarriage.com (collectively, “Proponents”), Defendant-Intervenorsbelow and Appellants in Case No. 10-16696, respectfully submit that this Courtshould grant the motion submitted by Imperial County Clerk Chuck Storey(“Imperial County”) to intervene as an appellant in this case. Proponents supportthe motion for the reasons stated by Imperial County and because Imperial Countyhas acted promptly to cure the defect identified by the panel with respect toImperial County’s standing (the fact that the County’s Clerk was not seeking tointervene), a defect that was first identified at oral argument.In addition, it may be proper to hold Imperial County’s motion in abeyanceduring the pendency of the California Supreme Court’s consideration of thequestion certified to it by this Court. This Court’s certification order states that“further proceedings in this court are stayed pending final action by the SupremeCourt of California.” Certification Order at 18, No. 10-16696 (Doc. No. 292).And while, as a technical matter, that order was entered in our appeal and not thisone, the Court to date has kept these two appeals in procedural lockstep.
See
Order of August 17, 2010 (Doc. No. 3) (ordering that “[t]his appeal shall becalendared with case No. 10-16696”); Order of November 26, 2010 (Doc. No. 49)(“For purposes of clarification, these appeals are consolidated for oral argument.”);Opinion at 14 (Doc. No. 65-1) (“The deadline for filing a petition for panel
