Laws may stop media blogging from court

Sean Nicholls (via SMH) | Jan. 14, 2013
Journalists may be restricted from live tweeting or blogging from inside courtrooms in NSW under proposed laws banning the use of smartphones and other devices to ''transmit information that forms part of the proceedings of a court''.

''The regulations will be drafted so as to protect the integrity of the court process.''

The spokeswoman said lawyers ''may have legitimate reasons for sending information about court proceedings to colleagues outside of court. The regulations will allow appropriate exemptions to cover such circumstances''.
