9th announces Prop 8 videotape ruling tomorrow

Timothy Kincaid

February 1st, 2012

Tomorrow at 10 a.m. the Ninth Circuit will release its ruling on whether the videotapes of the Proposition 8 case (Perry v. Schwarzenegger) can be released.

While we hope for full public disclosure, this ruling will tell us little about the court’s position on the case itself.

Woop Woop!!!
Roll Camera!
I say we cna’t loose. We have already been denied this video since January 2010. If they rule against us no big whoop, we are no worse off than we are now.

BUT if they rule for us, hey sweet.

I am a little old grandmother but I do my bit when I can. I sent several e-mails to people I thought would get the messages through to the Judges. I said, if you are gonna seal, don’t seal forever. At least make it like the Nixon tapes where after a certain number of years the seal is lifted. I reminded them how historical this trial is and that they owe it to History to release it, if not today eventually.

Since I did that little extra legwork and I am well, you know, pretty sure the Judges got my e-mail, I will be on pins and needles until tomorrow. No matter what, it is gonna be a good thing. We are going to be no worse off tomorrow than we are today.

I’m thinking they will deny the request to release the tapes — since Judge Walker seemed to promise they would not be released. I may be wrong. On the other points, I think things will go in our favor.
