In an effort to protect media coverage of courtroom proceedings, the MAB has filed comments to a Proposed Amendment to Rule 8.115 of the Michigan Court rules.  In its comments, the MAB respectfully requests the elimination of any language in the Proposed Amendment which encroaches on or conflicts with Administrative Order 1989-1, which provides guidelines shall apply to film or electronic media coverage of proceedings in Michigan courts.

In its comments, the MAB also said that “it would also be helpful if the Proposed Amendment contained a specific disclaimer to the effect that it is not intended to implicate broadcast media coverage of courtroom proceedings as governed by Administrative Order 1989-1.”
