MN High Court Taking Comments On Camera Options

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Supreme Court will take public comments until Dec. 17 on proposals for a pilot project on allowing news cameras in the state’s trial courts.

A court advisory committee studying the issue filed its final report last month. A narrow majority recommended an extensive study during the pilot project to try to measure the impacts of expanded camera coverage. The study would require raising at least $750,000. A minority recommended a less extensive study.

An order signed by Chief Justice Lorie Gildea, dated Friday and released by the advisory committee Monday, says the high court will consider the proposals without a hearing after reviewing the public comments on the two study options.

    What are the reasons for having the cameras? What good will it bring? It’s waste of our money to fund something that the media wants. If you ever here about anymore tax money wasted like this please email us and let us know.
