Prop. 8 proponents file emergency petition to stay broadcast of Perry trial; 9th Circuit panel denies petition

Emergency petition for a writ of mandamus or prohibition against broadcast of Perry trial, filed 01-08-10

9th Circuit panel order denying petition, filed 01-08-10

(Thanks to Rick Xiao, California attorney and site collaborator, for sending me the petition; to an anonymous reader for such prompt notice about it; and to a commenter on this post for the equally prompt notice of the order.)

As night follows day, this last-minute appeal was certain to follow. And so was the order rejecting it.

News on the filing of the petition:

News on the denial of the petition:

Anyone know where to find Tam's filing asking to be removed? It has to be wildly entertaining in a "what did you expect, idiot?!?"-sort of way.
