Prop 8 Trial re-enactment hits YouTube - Day 1

Since January 11th the "Prop 8" trial has been taking place in California. At first it was proposed that under a new law that allows cameras in the courtrooms that the trial would be broadcast.

Immediately those supporting Prop 8 shouted "foul" and tried to use the defense that if their witnesses were displayed on TV they would face attack and ridicule over their beliefs.  The judge, and ultimately the Supreme Court, ruled that the Prop 8 trials were too controversial of a subject to be the first to allow cameras.  Surprisingly, almost half of the defenses witnesses have refused to testify - even after the no camera rule was applied.

Now a group, Marriage Trial, has started creating re-enactments of the court proceedings based on the actual events.
