Recommendations of the MN Supreme Court Advisory Committee on the General Rules of Practice (re: cameras in courtrooms)
Group: Minnesota Judicial Branch
The advisory committee met five times' during 2007 and 2008 to consider the Court's referral to it of the issues raised by the Petition of Minnesota Joint Media Committee, Minnesota Newspaper Association, Minnesota Broadcasters Association, and Society of Professional Journalists, Minnesota Chapter ("Joint Petition"). In addition to its own research and deliberations, the committee held three meetings that amounted to public hearings, hearing from witnesses, including judges, lawyers, and representatives of organizations with an interest in these issues. The committee's recommendations are summarized below, but the primary recommendation is that tlie current rules not be substantially changed, other than to consolidate them into a single rule provision. A minority of the committee would favor a relaxation ofthe current rule, and allow a trial judge to permit electronic niedia access to the courtroom without requiring consent of all parties.
