Judiciary works to revise cameras-in-courtroom policy

Guam - The Judiciary of Guam is working with local media to revise its cameras in the courtroom policy that was established more than a decade ago. The revisions are expected to incorporate the latest trends in technology and provide a more standard approach to allowing cameras in to record court proceedings.  Superior Court Judge Maria Cenzon has been tapped as the chair of the subcommittee that is looking to deal with the immediate issue of cameras in the courtroom as well as to improve the flow of information between the Judiciary and the media.

"When you are frustrated by the lack of information that falls on the courts and we'd like to open up whatever barriers there are right now that may be posing an obstacle to making sure that there is at least that understanding of the process and how we can help you better report it to the public," she explained.

Officials are hopeful to have an interim policy in place in the coming days with continued dialogue with the media over the next few months as the judiciary seeks to update its policies and provide greater access for the media in covering court proceedings.
