In this discussion on cameras in the courts, David Sellars talked about the influences that led the Judicial Conference of the U.S. to finally experiment with putting cameras in certain lower federal courtrooms. He cited as factors the 45 states currently allowing cameras, interest from Congress, and advancing technology. Mr. Sellars pointed out that only the Supreme Court itself has the authority to allow cameras in the Supreme Court chamber. He also spoke about the technical input the Judicial Conference received from the television industry prior to installing cameras in the lower federal courts. close
