Twittering in the courtroom

By Steven | December 12, 2009

It’s been allowed in the US and Australia, with an Australian judge saying:

I believe that the public has a legitimate right to be fully informed of proceedings, particularly proceedings such as (the iiNet case), which have attracted considerable public interest. Twittering can serve to inform the public in a more speedy and comprehensive manner than may be possible through traditional media coverage.

It’s up to the judges case-by-case, as it should be. Frankly, I’m a bit skeptical about how well served the public will really be by twitter updates. But sometimes I feel a bit the same about media reports of trials and hearings.

Now, how about removing the ridiculous (and non-BORA compliant) rule that people taking notes in the public gallery may be committing contempt unless they get the judge’s approval?
