Quincy court going live on the Web
pasted from: May 02, 2011 By John R. Ellement, Globe Staff
Today, an experiment uniting the Internet, citizen bloggers, and the public’s right to know with the judicial system will start in one of the state’s busiest courthouses, Quincy District Court.
Dubbed Open Court, the project will have cameras and microphones operating today in the Quincy court’s first criminal session. At the same time, the court’s proceedings will be streamed live over the Internet at the new website created solely for Open Court — to give the public an unfiltered view of court proceedings. The site is http://www.opencourt.us.
