Prop 8 Watch: Two Big Issues to Be Argued Today

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments later today on whether to release the video recordings of the famous trial which found the proposition banning same gender marriage unconstitutional.

According to Reuters:

“Opponents of same-sex marriage are appealing a lower court decision to release the recordings. Same-sex marriage advocates, along with a coalition of media companies, want the recordings to be released. California state officials have said they do not oppose release.”

“Also on Thursday, the court will hear another question on appeal in the same case: opponents of same-sex marriage have appealed a decision to uphold the ruling that struck down Proposition 8, arguing that the judge who presided over the trial should have been disqualified because he is gay.”

Reuters has put together a great back grounder on everything you need to know to prep for today’s hearing. Click HERE.
