Florida bar attacks rights of citizen journalists

From Mark A. Adams:

Attorneys Attack Rights of Citizen Journalists

The Florida Bar has proposed a new rule to eliminate coverage of court proceedings by citizen journalists. The Bar’s proposed rule prohibits anyone other than an employee of a traditional media outlet or an official court reporter from using any device which can make video or audio recording from being brought into a court including laptop computers.

Check out the article and spread the news.

Please note that if you want to object to this rule, the objection must be emailed in to the attorneys at the Bar by the end of the day on Feb. 1, 2011. Their email addresses are in the article along with a suggested comment.

Carpe diem,

Mark A. Adams JD/MBA
