The Supreme Court has just announced they are blocking the video recording and broadcast of the controversial same-sex marriage trial set to begin later today in San Francisco, according to an AP report. The court has said they will not permit video to be broadcast on YouTube, even with a tape delay, because the justices need more time to consider the matter. The blocking holds until at least Wednesday. Those opposed to the video broadcast believe cameras will affect witness testimony.
