Coffee Stirrers: NOM Lost its appeal to intervene in Oregon

National Organization for Marriage
DC/Philadelphia based National Organization for Marriage lost an appeal before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to intervene meddle in Oregon.

Last year several gay couples sued to have the state's marriage equality ban struck down as unconstitutional.  Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum refused to defend the ban and joined the couples in asking U.S. District Judge Michael McShane to throw it out.

Much like the Proposition 8 case that left nobody with legal standing to appeal Judge McShane's ruling.

NOM asked to offer a defense of the ban on behalf of its members in Oregon. The judge ruled they lacked standing to intervene in the case. The Ninth CCA affirmed the lower court on Wednesday.
