U.S. Supreme Court blocks TV at Prop 8 trial

Bay City News reports that the U.S. Supreme Court this morning blocked the planned YouTube broadcast of a federal trial in San Francisco on the constitutionality of California's same-sex marriage ban.

The court said in a brief order that the stay will remain in effect until Wednesday while the court gives further consideration to an appeal in which the sponsors of Proposition 8 are seeking to prevent the video coverage.

Court officials had planned to allow members of the public to watch the trial remotely at a handful of federal courthouses throughout the country. Today's viewings have been canceled.
