Stay tuned tomorrow for details about an upcoming event King is planning for WMUR and its attorneys, wherein they will discuss, in open forum, his contention that his staff should be permitted the same access to courtrooms as they are. From Petition of WMUR No. 2001-0181:
"We conclude that media access to judicial proceedings includes the technological advances applicable to the media profession. In the twenty-five years since we adopted Superior Court Rule 78, the common law has advanced to treat technology such as cameras as important in the reporting of public courtroom proceedings. To the extent that Superior Court Rule 78 conflicts with this reality, it is no longer valid."King says he'll take them on by himself and welcome any questions from.... the media. All media.
Says King, "I'm the one accused (of Attempted Extortion) in the underlying criminal case, yet they are the ones trying to keep things hushed, from Depo. transcripts to cameras in the courtroom. That right there ought to tell you something."
