Minnesota Supreme Court OKs cameras in courtrooms in some cases

The Minnesota Supreme Court gave its stamp of approval Monday to cameras in the courtroom, making a three-year pilot project permanent.

That doesn’t mean that media outlets, TV stations, newspapers and independent journalists will be able to film every court case — DWIs and murder trials, alike — from start to finish. The ruling, like the pilot project, permits audio and video recordings “after a guilty plea has been accepted or a guilty verdict has been returned.”
