On Televising Federal Trials

In a very interesting article that recently appeared in The Philadelphia Lawyer and some other bar journals, Pepper Hamilton attorney M. Kelly Tillery writes about the Supreme Court's 2010 5-4 decision to stop arguments in Perry v. Schwarzenegger from being streamed to multiple courthouses, the Federal Judicial Conference's 1994 decision to reject the recommendation that some federal civil proceedings be broadcast, and his own positive experience as counsel in one of the few federal trials to have been televised, Neely v. Club Med, which appeared on Court TV in 1993.
