Pilot project proves cameras’ value; make them permanent
Thursday marked the first anniversary of the Supreme Court’s pilot project to allow news cameras and video recordings in Illinois trial courtrooms. The experiment has proved cameras’ value. Their presence in the state’s courtrooms should be made permanent.
Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride seems pretty pleased with the progress of the pilot project to allow news cameras and microphones in Illinois trial courtrooms.
Whiteside, Lee, Ogle and Carroll county courtrooms are among the 25 counties approved so far to participate in the first-ever Extended Media Coverage experiment.
We’re also pretty pleased, given our news department’s positive experiences utilizing still cameras and video cameras in Sauk Valley courtrooms during several major trials.
