New Rule Governs Electronic Access to Mass. Courts

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court today approved a new SJC Rule 1:19 governing Electronic Access to the Courts. It replaces the older rule on cameras in the courts to address changes in technology and journalism. Among other changes, the rule recognizes citizen journalists and entitles them to use cameras and computers to the same extent as other journalists.

I posted more information about the new rule and a full-text PDF at my LawSites blog.
