Nebraska Supreme Court to consider cameras in courtrooms

Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News

The Nebraska Supreme Court is scheduled to consider approving a rule change that would allow cameras in courtrooms across the state.
Judges in seven of 12 judicial districts have already allowed expanded media coverage in their courtrooms.        

Justice Jeff Funke says judges and attorneys have been working on the issue since May 2015.        

Funke says a March 1 start date will give time to address comments sent to the clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals by Nov. 15.
