From the American Foundation for Equal Rights:

AFER also provided an overview of what's coming up:

AFER, Boies and Olson will be back in court on September 6 for oral arguments in front of the California Supreme Court on the question of whether under California law official proponents of a ballot initiative have an interest in defending the initiative when it is challenged in court. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit deemed the question essential to its determination as to whether the official proponents of Proposition 8 have standing to appeal Judge Vaughn R. Walker's ruling from last summer.

In a separate hearing on August 29, AFER will go before the U.S. District Court to ask that the videotape of the District Court trial be released so that the public can see what happened at trial. Prop. 8 proponents have repeatedly tried to shield the tapes from the public.
