(Newser) – Though the Supreme Court kept California’s gay-marriage trial off YouTube, some enterprising filmmakers have fixed that. Using court transcripts and various reports of the proceedings, they’ve put 12 “episodes” of the Prop 8 trial on the Internet, using Hollywood actors (including Oscar nominee Tess Harper) to play plaintiffs, lawyers, the presiding judge (who’s considering both sides’ cases before allowing closing arguments) and others. See episodes here.
