San Francisco Court Of Appeal To Hear Arguments on Prop. 8

Written by 



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.

Chief U.S. District Judge James Ware ruled that confidence in the judicial system requires "public access to trials and public access to the record of judicial proceedings," and that "no compelling reasons exist for continued sealing of the digital recording of the trial," but it is not the opinion of the Proposition 8's supporters who want these videos remains under seals.

I point out that in 2010, Judge Vaughn had heard the arguments of the 2 parts, supporters and opponents to Prop.8, and that following these testimonies, he had decided to repeal prop. 8. These testimonies had then been filmed and these are these recordings of which it is questions here and who frighten supporters of Prop 8.
