Federal Court in Topeka Participating in Camera Project


875412 balance

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A courtroom inside the federal courthouse in Topeka this week became part of a pilot project to determine the impact of cameras on court proceedings. Four video cameras recorded arguments in a water case from Douglas County. The cameras focus on the witness stand, the lectern where lawyers ask questions, the judge's bench and a desk where evidence is displayed. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the courtroom deputy operates the cameras from her desk. The proceedings will be posted online after the hearings. The Court Administration and Case Management Committee is running the three-year pilot project. The judge in the Topeka case, U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson, leads that committee. She and four other federal judges in Kansas are participating in the project.
