For Print and Broadcast Media

Please carefully review the information about the use of recording devices in a courtroom.  For a variety of reasons, advance notification is required before court proceedings or open meetings may be recorded for broadcast.  We also want to ensure that we meet your technical needs by arranging a location for any equipment and any necessary connections to our in-house audio systems.
