To Watch the Ninth Circuit Oral Argument in the Prop 8 Appeal …

by Ed Whelan

C-SPAN will provide live online coverage of today’s Ninth Circuit oral argument in the Prop 8 appeal.

The argument is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. PT (1:00 p.m. ET) and to run two hours. The panel has divided the argument into two hour-long sessions. The first hour will address issues regarding the standing of Prop 8 proponents and of Imperial County. The second hour will address the constitutionality of Prop 8.

Here’s a more detailed breakdown:

Hour 1

15 minutes—Prop 8 proponents on standing

15 minutes—Imperial County on standing

30 minutes—plaintiffs/appellees

Rebuttal (if any) by Prop 8 proponents or Imperial County out of any time reserved

Hour 2

30 minutes—Prop 8 proponents on constitutionality of Prop 8

30 minutes—plaintiffs/appellees and City and County of San Francisco in opposition

I believe the breakdown is 20/10, but I may have missed a recent agreement that reallocates the time.

Rebuttal (if any) by Prop 8 proponents out of any time reserved
