Finally, the Court invites the parties to file letter briefs by February 11 advising the Court of their positions on two issues related to media access to this trial. First, the Court plans to allow a stationary camera to provide live video feed of the proceedings to an overflow courtroom. The Court is also considering the possibility of providing the media room (on the first floor of the courthouse) with a live audio feed of the proceedings as well as an "evidence feed" that would display evidence as it appears on jurors' monitors. The Court could also permit live video to be streamed into the media room. Second, press representatives have requested immediate access to exhibits after they are entered into evidence. The exhibits would be made available to the media through the Court, either by electronic filing or in hard copy.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
