SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

No. 09A648

DENNIS HOLLINGSWORTH ET AL. v. KRISTIN M. PERRY ET AL.

ON APPLICATION FOR STAY

[January 13, 2010]

PER CURIAM.

We are asked to stay the broadcast of a federal trial. We resolve that question without expressing any view on whether such trials should be broadcast. We instead determine that the broadcast in this case should be stayedbecause it appears the courts below did not follow the appropriate procedures set forth in federal law beforechanging their rules to allow such broadcasting. Courts enforce the requirement of procedural regularity on oth-ers, and must follow those requirements themselves.

*** This lawsuit, still in a preliminary stage, involves anaction challenging what the parties refer to as Proposition 8, a California ballot proposition adopted by the electorate. Proposition 8 amended the State Constitution by adding a new section providing that [o]nly marriage between aman and a woman is valid or recognized in California. Cal. Const. Art. I, ยง7.5. The plaintiffs contend that Propo-sition 8 violates the United States Constitution. A bench trial in the case began on Monday, January 11, 2010, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The District Court has issued an order permitting thetrial to be broadcast live via streaming audio and video toa number of federal courthouses around the country. full story:
