Legal Information: Cameras in Court Pilot Project Now Has 70 Videos Online

From the Administrator of the U.S. Courts:

The federal judiciary’s digital video pilot, which started in July, now has posted some 70 videos of various courtroom proceedings in eight separate cases.

In all, 14 federal trial courts* are participating in the three-year experiment.

The pilot is limited to civil, not criminal, cases. No proceedings may be recorded without the approval of the presiding judge and the consent of the parties. The recordings are posted on this website and also may be posted on the participating court’s website.

You can read more about the pilot project, and view the videos already posted, on the Cameras in Courts page.
