The Sunshine in the Courtroom Act, which would allow the use of still and video cameras in all federal district and appeals courts, drew bipartisan support at a House Judiciary Committee hearing. The testimony included that of Republican Rep. Ted Poe, one of the bill’s sponsors, who recounted his experience with courtroom cameras as a judge in Texas. Several committee members, rather than questioning witnesses, offered their comments in support of the bill, as well. (10/1/07)
