senate Bill S. 405

Bringing Cameras into Federal Courts

Argument in favor

Allowing the broadcast of proceedings in federal courts would increase knowledge and interest in the judicial process. A more transparent courtroom guarantees the right to a public trial.

Argument opposed

Bringing cameras into courtrooms could affect the way that witnesses, judges, jurors, and prosecutors behave. It also raises the potential to publicly expose / endanger vulnerable witnesses and jurors.
