The event is free and open to the public.
Courtroom Television Anchor Raymond Brown, Pace University School of Law Professor Jay Carlisle, who sits on the New York State Governor’s Commission on Cameras in the Courtroom, and County Court Judge Kenneth Lange, who is president of the County Court Judges Association of the State of New York, will discuss the various aspects of this controversial topic with Kevin Doyle, capital defender at the New York State Capital Defender’s Office, Jack Litman, of Litman, Asche & Gioiella in New York City and other leading experts.
Governor George Pataki appointed Carlislie and Pace trustee Henry Miller to the New York State Committee to Review Audio and Visual Coverage of Court Proceedings in New York. The New York State Legislature has asked the committee to evaluate the state’s ten year experiment with cameras in the courts and issue a report to the legislature by May 1, 1997. The legislature will decide whether the legislation authorizing cameras should be permanent.
