Thanks, as always, to Kathleen for bringing these our way. The 9th Circuit has just announced that San Francisco’s KRON4 television station can broadcast next Thursday’s hearings live and record them for later broadcast. Exciting news–we’ll have more on this as it develops.
Also, today was the deadline in the 9th Circuit for reply briefs from both parties regarding the California Supreme Court’s decision to grant the proponents of Proposition 8 standing to appeal under California law. The appellate court had asked both sides to comment on the effect of the state court’s decision on their respective arguments. So far we’ve only received the proponents’ brief, which you can read in full below. We’ll post the plaintiffs’ brief when it arrives.
