A federal court judge in California has decided to broadcast the upcoming trial on California’s gay marriage ban as part the 9th Circuits experimental broadcast program.
The experimental program, just adopted, allows non-jury civil cases to be filmed by court personnel and then uploaded at the end of the day’s proceedings. The chief judge must approve the filming request. The court had already denied a request from CourtTV to broadcast live.
While the trial will be not available live to the general, it will be shown live in 9th Circuit headquarters, and other federal courthouses in various cities across the country.
