Proposition 8 hearing will not be videotaped, judge rules

A federal judge in San Francisco decided Thursday that an upcoming hearing on Proposition 8 would not be videotaped because of objections by backers of the ban on same-sex marriage. 

The Monday hearing has been scheduled to determine whether videotapes of last year's historic federal Proposition 8 trial should be released to the public.

Backers of the 2008 ballot measure that ended six months of gay marriages in California contend that public release of the trial videotapes would subject their witnesses and others to harassment.
