Marriage case goes to trial

Posted By on Mon, Jan 11, 2010 at 6:50 AM

The New York Times sets the stage for opening of arguments today in the case challenging the constitutionality of California's ban on same sex marriage.

Arkansas native Chad Griffin, who heads the group that hired David Boies and Ted Olson to argue the challenge, is quoted.

Still pending is the legal effort by opponents of gay marriage to keep the case from being televised on a delayed basis. They like to do their work in secret.

UPDATE: The U.S. Supreme Court has temporarily blocked broadcast of the trial. It wants more time to consider the request to block it permanently.Will the right-wing court pander to the oppressors?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
