The videos recorded during the lawsuit of January 2010, when Judge Vaughn Walker had overturned Proposition 8, will remain sealed for the moment.
The audience relating to Prop.8, which will take place next week, could include a 2010 video which shows testimonies of gay marriage defenders.
Today, the Court of Appeal of San Francisco will hear the arguments of the supporters and opponents to know if the video of the 2010 lawsuit must be or not released to the public and if the decision of Judge Vaughn to repeal the ban of gay marriage in California was impartial as he is gay.
Bad news in California, the Supreme Court ordered that ProtectMarriage could defend in appeal proposition 8 in a federal court.
Finally we will know the California Supreme Court's opinion: Can the sponsors of Prop. 8 defend or not the bill in state court as the governor and the attorney general refuse?
In California, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals denied the request of the lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies to lift the stay on gay marriages in California so the marriage is always impossible.
It was today that the Supreme Court of California was supposed to decide if yes or not the supporters of Prop.8 have the right to defend the referendum but there will be a delay.
Cross your fingers, the announcement was made on the Los Angeles times, we will know if the supporters of Prop.8 can defend or not the law. This decision will be made apparently during the next week.
For more details, it is here.
So I'm back. Sorry for the lack of news, I travelled and I did not have the possibility of connecting my computer to the US electricity and now the wifi in the hotel where I'm located in Los Angeles is just shitty. So here what we missed?
The play, "8", recounts the proceedings which we all know under the name of Proposition 8.
Wrote by Dustin Lance Black (scriptwriter of the films Harvey Milk and J Edgar) and staged by Rob Reiner, it was played at the beginning of March in Los Angeles by an amazing cast: Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison (Glee), George Clooney, Matt Bomer, Chris Colfer, Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, John C. Reilly (Chicago), Kevin Bacon, George Takei (Star Trek) and Brad Pitt playing the openly gay Judge Vaulghn Walker and the list continues.
As they wanted that a lot of people can watch it, they uploaded the play on Youtube and here it is!
