After soliciting public comment and arguments from the parties on whether to broadcast the Prop 8 trial, Chief Judge Vaughn Walker confirmed Wednesday that he will permit the trial proceedings to be made available to the public via a tape-delayed version to be posted on YouTube.

Proponents of prop 8 had petitioned the court unsuccessfully to keep the proceedings from being broadcast to the public, claiming public access to the proceedings could affect witness testimony. 

The proceedings will be made available at YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/usdccand.
