Supreme Court Rules Against Release Of Proposition 8 Trial Videotapes

Yesterday the Supreme Court ruled that video taken during the Proposition 8 trial may not ever be released.
The Supreme Court on Monday ordered the 9th Circuit to dismiss as moot a dispute over the release of videotape from the trial overturning Proposition 8, California's voter-approved ban on gay marriage. Prop 8 supporters had sought to block the retention and release of trial video even to the parties, fearing it might eventually be released to the public. The 9th Circuit refused to intervene, and the Supreme Court vacated and remanded, instructing the circuit court to dismiss the dispute as moot after the justices ruled 5-4 on Jan. 13 to block any broadcast of the trial to the general public.
NOM has already tweeted in celebration of the ruling.
