Media Access

We have experience in obtaining public records and proceedings that agencies and courts seek to bar the public from seeing and reviewing.  Some of our matters include:

Access to Records

  • Successfully represented the California First Amendment Coalition and the Riverside Press-Enterprise in a case of first impression under Proposition 59, California's new constitutional open government and right of access mandate, seeking a settlement agreement entered into by the Court in a separate, underlying case.

Cameras in Courtrooms

  • On behalf of Court TV Professional, a provider of subscription-based webcast services, we successfully argued to have cameras in the courtroom for a trial in Los Angeles County for the first time since the O.J. Simpson case.
