A federal judge overseeing a lawsuit challenging California's same-sex marriage ban is considering whether to allow closing arguments to be broadcast on television or the internet.

Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker issued a notice on Tuesday stating he would hear final arguments on June 16.

Walker heard more than two weeks of testimony in January but delayed closing arguments to allow lawyers to submit more evidence.



The Associated Press and other media organisations have requested that cameras be permitted in court for closing arguments.

Walker in January authorised the real-time streaming of the proceedings for viewing in other federal courthouses and a delayed transmission on YouTube. But the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the broadcasts at the request of Proposition 8 sponsors.
