The Judicial Conference of the United States approved a change to its broadcast policy that expands the public’s access to civil and bankruptcy proceedings. The revised policy will permit judges presiding over bankruptcy cases to provide the public, including members of the media, with audio-only access to proceedings that do not involve witness testimony. For information on how to access a particular hearing before a particular Judge, please refer to that Judge’s posted procedures.
In addition, this Court has updated its eCourt Appearances page, which can be found here: https://www.nyeb.uscourts.gov/node/2126
