The U.S. District Court in Massachusetts is among 14 federal courts participating in a pilot project allowing cameras in the courtroom. I am moderating a panel this week that will look at this pilot project, and also contrast it with the experimental OpenCourt digital-access project under way in Quincy District Court. Also on the panel will be former U.S. District Judge Nancy Gertner, now a professor at Harvard Law School, and Joe Spurr, a multimedia journalist and the director of OpenCourt.

The brown-bag program is Tuesday, March 6, 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., at the Boston Bar Association, 16 Beacon St., Boston. More details and registration information are available here.
