Court TV failed in its effort to get New York’s Court of Appeals to overturn a ban on cameras in the court. In a 7-0 decision, the state’s highest court said that is a legislative prerogative. The court said the ban on cameras was “not a restriction on the openness of court proceedings but rather on what means can be used in order to gather news.” (6/20/05)
