Editorial: Unseal the Prop 8 videotapes


Now, as the 10-year anniversary of Walker's ruling approaches on August 4, Prop 8 opponents and media outlets want the videotapes unsealed — not surprisingly, proponents of Prop 8 want them to remain unseen.

Federal Judge William H. Orrick is scheduled to hold a hearing on the matter next week. Two years ago, Orrick ruled the videotapes should remain under seal after August 12, 2020 only if "compelling reasons exist to continue to seal them."We don't believe there is any compelling reason to.
