Just now, the 9th Circuit granted an emergency stay requested by proponents of Prop 8. The stay is on Judge Ware’s earlier decision to release the recordings of the trial to the public. The court also set a week on which to hear arguments on the matter.
Principal briefs are due on November 14th and reply briefs due no later than November 28th. The 9th Circuit panel will then hear oral arguments the week of December 5th, with a specific date to be set later.
As noted earlier, the proponents of Prop 8 came right out and said they planned to appeal this to the Supreme Court if the 9th Circuit did not grant the stay.
As usual, P8TT will be there to cover the briefs and oral arguments in the case.
