BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court Blocks Prop 8 TV Cameras

The U.S. Supreme Court has just issued a temporary injunction blocking television cameras from the Prop 8 trial, which begins today in San Francisco.
The court's decision is not the final word; the stay sought by same-sex marriage opponents expires Wednesday. The court said that will permit justices "further consideration." The trial is scheduled to start Monday. Justice Stephen G. Breyer was the only justice to object. "I agree with the court that further consideration is warranted, and I am pleased that the stay is time-limited," Breyer wrote. But he said the court's standards for issuing a stay were not met because there is not a likelihood of "irreparable harm" if the proceedings were available on the Internet.
It appears that the Court agrees with the wingnuts that their lives are in peril from them there radical homofascists. That may not bode well should Perry v Schwarzenegger make it to them.
