US Supreme Court ruled against broadcasting the trial on whether the California ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional on the Internet before it concludes, giving as reason protecting the ban’s supporters.
PinkNews: Supreme Court bans broadcasting of California gay marriage trial
Apparently, opponents of gay marriage, who have conducted a public campaign for the ban, are all of a sudden afraid they might be “subject to intimidation and irreparable harm”, and the justices ruled the intimidation and irreparable harm, whatever that means in this case, may occur, but only as long as the trial is under way. Strange indeed. Seems more like “we don’t care if the stupidity of our arguments is made public as long as we have won the trial” to me. That said, why had the proceedings been proposed to be publicised on YouTube?
