SJC Rules In Favor Of OpenCourt

The highest court in Massachusetts has ruled in favor of OpenCourt, a project of WBUR, and will allow it to live stream trials from Quincy District court online.

The Supreme Judicial Court says OpenCourt should be treated like any other media organization and should be allowed to cover trials, including live streaming.

OpenCourt has been streaming proceedings from one Quincy courtroom since May of 2011. When the site asked to also stream from another court with trials, the Norfolk District Attorney asked the court to block the move.

This program aired on August 15, 2012. The audio for this program is not available.
