Ind. Courts - "#CanITweet? Guidance to courts on the limits of Broadcast Ban"
A good article by Adrienne Meiring* in this month's publication of the Indiana courts, Indiana Court Times, addresses in detail two questions:
- Is Tweeting Broadcasting?
- Can a judge ethically ban electronics from the courtroom or place restrictions on use of electronics in the courtroom?
* It would be helpful if the position and qualifications of the authors of articles appearing in Indiana Court Times were provided to readers, perhaps in a footnote, as is the practice in other legal publications. The information is used by readers to help determine the weight and reliance to be given to an article. In this case, Ms. Meiring, an attorney employed by the Indiana Courts for a number of years now as counsel to the Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications, is well known to members of the judiciary, but perhaps not to all readers. ILB mentions of Ms. Meiring date back to Oct. 14, 2009.
