Last week we told you that Judge Walker approved a plan to broadcast the Proposition 8 trial on youtube.com over the objections of some of Prop 8’s supporters. The Supreme Court has ordered that footage of the trial, which began today in San Francisco, not be released until it has had time to consider the issue. The order also blocks an further orders implementing televised proceedings of the trial until the Court takes the matter under review.

Supporters of Prop 8, which amended the California Constitution to strip same sex marriages of any legal recognition in the state, argued that broadcasting the trial would be unfair to witnesses and could lead to intimidation. Justice Breyer, who dissented from the order, said he was not persuaded that Prop 8’s supporters would suffer any harm from the broadcast.
