Cameras in the courtroom in Illinois

The Supreme Court of Illinois recently announced that it will begin a trial run of allowing cameras in the state’s circuit courts, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The media has been allowed to record proceedings in the state Supreme Court and the Illinois Appellate Court since 1983, but until now has not been allowed to record proceedings in the state’s 23 circuit courts.

Several other states allow the media to film and photograph circuit court proceedings, but the U.S. Supreme Court and federal courts still prohibit the practice.
