Attorneys representing Wisconsin media groups say a judge should unseal all documents that don't reveal private information about the subjects of a secret investigation into Gov. Scott Walker's recall election and others.
After more than two decades of legal battles, rallies, protests and campaigns, proponents of gay marriage say they are increasingly confident as they await their day in court.
A federal judge said Monday he would decide soon on whether to unseal videotape recordings from the 2010 trial on Proposition 8, California's voter-approved initiative affirming one man, one woman marriage.
Boutrous said the court needs to take a narrow approach when deciding what information, if unsealed, should remain redacted from public view.
"This court need not question whether it has the 'authority' to determine whether material filed by the parties should be sealed or unsealed on its docket," Boutrous wrote. "To the contrary, this court has an independent obligation to determine whether sealing the record is warranted."
