Normally one can't even get an audio recorder through security at a federal court church. Now there is full video of the trial? Is this precedent? Can we have for ?

@FTL_Ian Federal and state courts operate under different rules.

Most state courts limit recording devices (NB: your laptop, cellphone, or tablet are recording devices as seen by the law), though exceptions may be made for the press, typically at the specific discretion of the presiding judge.


@dredmorbius yes, I'm aware. At the time I wrote that, I thought Rittenhouse was in fed court

@FTL_Ian Not ... yet.

(Federal trial on civil rights charges is being mooted.)
