Supreme Judicial Court Amends Rule 1:19 Regarding Electronic Access to the Courts

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court amended Rule 1:19 last week.  It now allows the media to use laptops and other electronic devices in the courtroom as long as they’re not disruptive.  Media outlets other than broadcast television and still photographers can also use video cameras.  You can read the amending order, including the full text of the new rule, here.  Hat tip to the Social Law Library.
