Perry v. Schwarzenegger (The California Prop 8 Trial that I wrote about here) will NOT be televised.
“The Supreme Court has indefinitely blocked cameras from covering the high-profile federal court trial on the constitutionality of California’s ban on same-sex marriage. The high court split 5-4 Wednesday, with the conservative justices in the majority.” — Associated Press, 1:51 p.m., Wednesday, January 13
The Courage Campaign is fighting back.
They have instituted the Prop 8 Trial Tracker, which will “cover the trial live from the courthouse and document and respond to right-wing attacks on the process.” I love the Trial Tracker logo, because it is an obvious parody of the ProtectMarriage.com logo “Yes on 8” (an anti-gay marriage organization). To see a side-by-side comparison of the two, go to the Courage Campaign’s blog post on the subject, which includes – as a bonus! – the complete Cease and Desist letter from protectmarriage.com’s laywers demanding CC remove the parodied logo because they allege IP infringement. And then CC lawyers smack them down. Yes!
