The courtrooms in WV are full of corruption. From the circuit courts. All the way up to the Supreme Court. Judges take thousands of dollars from corporations. To run their campaigns. Look at Justice Benjamin and Davis. Loughry used tax payer money to ran his. Now that is a bunch of ********. Only justice in America. Depends on now much money you have. Not right or wrong.

caltransplant, So what do you think about live camera feeds coming from the court room?

Interestingly you actually think that the courts provide a "fair" trial! Laugh for the day!

Not that I disagree with the Judge, but, this writer has got it wrong...again. The right of the press to be in court doesn't trump the defendant's right to a fair trial, as you imply. Mr. McCoid was not attempting chip away at the right of the press. Had he not made that motion, it would probably be ineffective assistance of counsel.

Probably, the better motion would have been to bar cameras.

Btw, anyone who buys your expression of concern for the publics right know is a fool.
