High Profile Cases

Section 8.  High Profile Cases

 

The Presiding Judge has the discretion to identify any case as a high profile case for purposes of this media policy.  If any media agency wishes to have a case identified as a high profile case, it shall submit a written request to the Presiding Judge.

Pursuant to California Rule of Court 2.503(e), the Court will make a determination on a case by case basis if remote electronic access will be provided for high profile cases. Under California Rule of Court 2.503, the Presiding Judge of the Court, or a judge assigned by the Presiding Judge, may exercise discretion to permit electronic access by the public to all or a portion of the public court records in an individual case if (1) the number of requests for access to documents in the case is extraordinarily high and (2) responding to those requests would significantly burden the operations of the Court.
