It's already being called a media circus.

One of California's most high profile court cases is about to go viral.

At the heart of the case is whether the state had the constitutional right to ban gay marriage.
And starting this morning, the trial will be broadcast on Youtube.

As Keith Boag is reporting this morning, a gay couple is taking the State of California to court. They say it allowed a majority of voters to over rule a Supreme Court decision that said gay people have the right to marry.

The legal team taking on the state unites two of the most formidable legal minds in the country :

Theodore Olson represented Republican Presidential candidate George W. Bush at the Supreme Court in the 2000 election battle over the Florida ballot returns. David Boies represented democratic candidiate Al Gore in that same case.

Tune in to World Report... or watch the trial unfold at YouTube.
