Judge decides to broadcast federal marriage trial via YouTube

A federal judge has decided to allow the trial on the constitutionality of California's Prop. 8 to be videotaped and broadcast on YouTube. You can read more about the decision here.

The trial will be a test of federal protections for minority groups. The plaintiffs will argue that Prop. 8, which removed the right of same-sex couples in California to wed, is a breach of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which requires states to provide equal protection under the law to all people within their jurisdictions.
