California federal Judge Vaughn Walker made it clear Wednesday that he will forge ahead with televising the federal challenge to Prop 8 -- but he also signaled he doesn't want to be the next Lance Ito. The trial, which begins on Monday, will be filmed by court personnel, Walker ruled, but it will not be broadcast live. Instead, the recording will be posted on a YouTube page after the close of the day's proceedings. Walker declined an offer from In Session (formerly Court TV) to broadcast live, with its own crew.
