A California legal group is eager to argue before the U.S. Supreme Court that rulings against the state's traditional marriage initiative were based on false premises.

The Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) has filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of California's traditional marriage initiative, outlining why the court rulings against Proposition 8 were based on "flawed premises."

Dacus, Brad (PJI)PJI president Brad Dacus tells OneNewsNow his firm represents mental health physician Daniel Robinson, who is litigating against same-sex "marriage" for the first time.

"We are excited to represent Dr. Robinson and present his impressive scholarly reasoning to the U.S. Supreme Court in defense of Proposition 8," Dacus comments.

"PJI has been involved in defending traditional marriage in California for more than a dozen years, and we will continue to do so as long as it takes. These cases are crucial not only for the future of the family, but also for the future of democracy and the people's prerogative to determine momentous social issues for themselves."

The court will hear arguments on the constitutionality of Prop. 8 on March 26 and will consider the Defense of Marriage Act the following day.
