The state Supreme Court will hear arguments March 5 on the validity of Proposition 8. The court said today that it would hold a three-hour hearing, from 9 a.m. to noon, at its chambers in San Francisco. The proceedings will also be televised statewide on the California Channel. A ruling is due within 90 days of the hearing.
The court will hear arguments from same sex couples as well as local governments. The court has also asked the opposing sides to present arguments on whether 18,000 same-sex marriages performed in California before Nov. 4 remain valid if Prop. 8 is upheld.
I’m so excited and nervous!! Does anyone know about the "California Channel"? Does the general public have access to that? If you know anything let me know so I can pass along the information. firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!!
UPDATE: Jason just informed me that the California Channel is shown in Sac but we can all tune in online and watch the proceedings. How exciting! Just go to the following web address to watch the hearing. http://www.calchannel.com/
