prop 8 challenge to be youtubed

from the san jose mercury news:
A judge today approved a limited form of broadcasting the trial in the legal challenge to California's ban on same-sex marriage, concluding it is the type of case that warrants breaking with traditions that generally ban cameras in federal courts.

Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker approved court-operated cameras in his courtroom for delayed release on YouTube, but rejected a bid by media organizations to televise the proceedings themselves for live broadcast.

Walker rejected the arguments of Proposition 8's defenders, who opposed any broadcast of the proceedings outside the San Francisco federal building. It was not clear from Walker's remarks how long the delay would be for the video to be posted on the Internet.
the fun begins on monday.
