FTC Responds to Judicial Conference's Live Audio Pilot Announcement

Fix the Court senior researcher Tyler Cooper had this to say about today’s announcement that 13 U.S. District Courts will participate in a live audio pilot program for the next two years:

“It’s encouraging to see the Judicial Conference reconsider its position on live audio by committing to a new two-year pilot program at select district courts around the country.

“Though the program will be subject to a number of unfortunate restrictions, including that the livestreams may not be recorded or rebroadcast, we are confident that the judiciary will find, as the rest of the world already has, that public proceedings are not undermined by increased public access.

“In fact, in order for a court proceeding to truly be made ‘public’ in a modern and expansive country like ours, live remote access is required.”
