Cameras In Court
The Minnesota Supreme Court says it will continue to allow media to use cameras in certain civil cases, and it is ordering a study to see if cameras should be considered in certain criminal proceedings as well.
As part of a statewide pilot project, WCCO-TV has been allowed to take cameras into courtrooms. It gives you a chance to watch proceedings that have never been seen on television before.
News organizations and media attorneys say they hope a judicial order allowing cameras in civil cases will help them prove that cameras and other electronic recording devices wouldn’t be out of place in criminal trials.
