Below is all the information about the decision from Lynn Fuller, Media & Public Outreach Liaison, United States District Court, Northern District of California:
On August 4, 2010, the court will issue its written order containing findings of fact and conclusions of law following the court trial held in January and June of this year. The order will be e-filed in the courtÂ’s Electronic Case Filing system, and will be immediately available thereafter through ECF and PACER. Visit www.cand.uscourts.gov for details on registering for PACER. There will be no court proceeding associated with the publication of the order.
The Perry order will be e-filed between 1 pm and 3 pm tomorrow. It will be available electronically to the public not only through PACER but also directly from the court’s website, www.cand.uscourts.gov, free of charge soon after it is e-filed.

I did a CNN i Report for Producer Chris Morrow at the Prop 8 trial in back in January. It is available to see here: CLICK HERE
Chris gave me an hd flip camera to cover this historic case. There were no cameras allowed in the courtroom thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court, but the cafeteria seemed to be okay.
I did interviews with legendary attorney David Boies, civil rights leader Stuart Milk, nephew of the incredible Harvey Milk, Chief Deputy San Francisco City Attorney Therese Stewart who had questioned the wittiness that day and spectator and Stanford student Adam Hahn. Hope you enjoy it!
It will be an exciting day, and I am very optimistic about the outcome. Equal protection is in the Constitution for just this reason.

“Wednesday, we talk about the ongoing debate over marriage, which again surfaced in Iowa this week when the so-called National Organization for Marriage visited Iowa. To be clear, NOM is only for certain marriages, and has supported tactics and an agenda that are markedly discriminatory. There visit to Iowa comes at a time when a recent KCCI poll showed 53% of Iowans in support of marriage rights for same-sex couples.”
