Prop8 Federal Case: sign petition to televise the trial!

So, you may remember, there's a Prop8 federal case, Perry v. Schwarzeneggar, that challenges PropH8 on the grounds of equal protection: a federal challenge, to be heard in 2 week in Federal Court (Ninth Circuit in California). Part of this case turns on whether the Bad Guys were motivated by animus against GLBT people.

Originally it was to be televised, but now the bad guys are suing to keep it quiet. Seems their witnesses are unwilling to be seen in public.

The Judge is seeking public comment about televising the trial. Please speak out for transparency! This is a FEDERAL CASE now, and a federal judge--not limited to Californians, but relevant to all Americans.
