D. Post-trial proceedings

Overview

The Supreme Court has not directly addressed this subject, but lower courts have extended the presumption of access to post-trial civil proceedings. InNewman v. Graddick, 696 F.2d 796, 801 (11th Cir. 1983), for example, the court recognized a constitutional right of access to post-trial proceedings in a civil case dealing with prisoners’ rights.
