Walker to preside over Prop. 8 trial 

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker will preside over a trial that begins Monday on a lawsuit in which two same-sex couples claim the state’s ban on gay and lesbian marriage violates their federal constitutional rights. The measure was enacted by California voters in 2008 as Proposition 8. A federal appeals court in San Francisco on Friday rejected a lawsuit in which sponsors of Prop. 8 challenged a plan to broadcast the trial on YouTube.
