No TV coverage for Prop. 8 closing arguments
Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker issued a brief order Thursday (June 10) denying a request by media organizations to televise the arguments in the trial over gay marriage, scheduled to last all day Wednesday in San Francisco, according to the Chronicle. Walker did not spell out his reasons for denying the media request. The arguments will still be shown on closed-circuit TV, but only in an overflow courtroom at the San Francisco courthouse at 450 Golden Gate Ave.
