Prop 8 Trial Play Online

Sheri pointed out on another thread that the dramatization of the Prop 8 trial is now available to view on YouTube. This is the play created using transcripts of the original trial where Justice Vaughn Walker declared Prop 8 unconstitutional. A 3-judge panel affirmed that decision 2-1 and there is currently a request to the complete 9th District to create an en banc hearing.

I’m not sure if you are working on an update for this Laura, but in case your readers haven’t heard, here’s a link to the play “8″ written by Dustin Lance Black, directed by Rob Reiner, with an all star cast including, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Martin Sheen, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, and more. I watched it streaming live. For those who don’t know, they reenacted the transcripts from the Prop 8 trial closing arguments because the judge would not allow them to be made public. So this all star group got around that in a very clever way. It was awesome to watch. No wonder Prop 8 proponents didn’t want it made public – their arguments could hold water.

    Thanks for posting this, Laura. I just read on Prop8trialtracker that 8 will only be available on You Tube until Sat. evening.

    I encourage every to view it and see just what did go on at the trial. Then you will know why the pro prop 8 side does not want the tapes made available to the public.

    Thanks for posting it Laura. I just noticed though, my last line should have read, “their arguments could NOT hold water:-)
