The Minnesota Supreme Court will hear arguments about permanently allowing cameras in court, following trials by former police officers Derek Chauvin and Kim Potter, which were watched by millions of people around the world.

An advisory committee made up of Minnesota court judges, attorneys and staff is recommending that the court continue its routine of keeping cameras away. Minnesota media and advocacy groups say it’s time for the state to embrace the technology like neighboring Iowa, Wisconsin and North Dakota.

Minnesota’s superior court is scheduled to hear arguments on the matter on Tuesday.

Media and government organizations, along with Cahill, sent letters to the Supreme Court in support of expanded access to cameras. Victims’ rights groups, public defenders, defense attorneys and prosecutors are opposed, the Star Tribune reported.

“The fact is, these are incredibly emotional times, difficult times for all parties involved,” said Minnesota State Public Defender Bill Ward. “Justice shouldn’t be a spectator sport and shouldn’t be sensationalized in the media.”
