Cameras in the Courtroom

Courtrooms across the country are experimenting with video cameras in the courtroom.

Fourteen federal trial courts are taking part in the federal Judiciary\’s digital video pilot, which started July 18, 2011, and will evaluate the effect of cameras in courtrooms. All 14 courts volunteered to participate in the three-year experiment. More information, including a list the 14 participating courts, is available on the Overview of Pilot page.

Video recordings and brief summaries of the cases from participating courts are organized by court, subject matter, and procedural posture. Click on the tabs to display the available case recordings.
