16th Circuit committee puts final touches on courtroom camera rules
YORKVILLE – A courtroom media committee Wednesday put the final touches on rules for how the 16th Judicial Circuit will handle media coverage of a trial.
The Illinois Supreme Court in January approved a pilot program for news cameras and electronic news recordings in Illinois trial courtrooms for the first time.
The 16th Judicial Circuit includes Kane, DeKalb and Kendall counties. A committee comprised of judicial and county officials along with attorneys from across the district have put together a policy to give to 16th Circuit Court Chief Judge Robert Spence, who would then present it to the Illinois Supreme Court for implementation.
