California is probably the most camera friendly State out there. Still, the judges are obstructing the entry of the media into their courts. In Virginia the only place regularly broadcast is Wise County which puts its circuit court cases up on the web.
I've only had a reporter request to tape one of my cases but a co-defendant's attorney called and told her he would oppose camera presence. Apparently the case wasn't important enough to make a fuss over because after that the reporter didn't even show up. I called to see if I could find out why she was so interested (it was a simple petit larceny) but she never returned my call.
