Remember those video recordings of the lawsuit against gay marriage, the recordings that anti-gay activists didn’t want anyone to see? They’re coming out.
Video recordings of the trial over California’s gay marriage ban should be unsealed, a federal judge ruled on Monday.
District Judge James Ware in San Francisco said in a court order that there was “no compelling” reason to keep the digital files under seal.
This is a serious setback for those who believe in the right to harass and oppress others from the safety and privacy of court-protected anonymity. In this case, however, I think the interests of society as a whole outweigh the privileges of the oppressors.
