Prop. 8: Videos Won't Be Released

Written by 


The videos recorded during the lawsuit of January 2010, when Judge Vaughn Walker had overturned Proposition 8, will remain sealed for the moment.

The Court of Appeal, which currently studies the arguments of Prop. 8 sponsors, thinks that making the recordings public would endanger witnesses and damage the "credibility and integrity of the federal judiciary."

However, nothing is yet sure. As The San Francisco Chronicle explains, "Chief U.S. District Judge James Ware ruled Sept. 19 that the videos would be released this Friday unless a higher court intervened. On Monday, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco issued a temporary stay, which is likely to be renewed while the appeals court and the U.S. Supreme Court review the dispute."
