    What?! Is there something happening today? Wow, what are people afraid of?

    Just checked http://prop8trialtracker.com/ which previously showed same-day transcripts of the trial and that site has no comment about anything happening regarding the trial.

    http://prop8trialtracker.com/ has an update on what happened. The “live blogger” was in the courtroom, not the overflow room (which wasn’t in use). I’d guess that they don’t allow laptops due to them being a distraction – beeps or the sound of the hard disks. You probably can’t give a free pass to a single person with a laptop – if you let one member of the public use one, everyone else can to.
